Holiday Food Drive

Helping the needy in our community

2021 Food Drive Info

This year we are getting back to a more traditional food drive, where we go out and collect food from the community. We will be doing this responsibly, with health and safety measures in place.

Volunteering

We’re joining together to support the less fortunate among us. Please use the signup form below to tell us how you can help!


PASSING OUT EMPTY BAGS OCT. 30: This is where we need the most help! We will pass out bags to over 2500 local homes. You can select your territory at the tables in the foyer. 

  • If it’s raining, please take your map and bags and distribute them by Wednesday, Nov. 3.
  • When you select your territory, you may also request to collect the filled bags from the same territory. 


DONATING FOOD: We would like every member of the College and Village churches to donate non-perishable food (check expiration dates because we can’t give out expired food). Please bring it to the College Church fellowship hall by Nov. 6.


FOOD BAG COLLECTION: On Nov. 6 we pick up the filled bags (you can select a territory that day even if you weren’t able to help hand out the bags). Then we have a sorting party in the Fellowship Hall.


FOOD SORTING AND BOX PACKING: We have set aside times for sorting and packing (see below), but please feel free to come any time in that window.


DELIVERING THE FOOD BOXES: Nov. 20. Plan ahead to join us! We need drivers and deliverers. Refreshments, sharing time and fellowship to follow. 


TO HELP FINANCIALLY: Mark your tithe envelope Holiday Food Drive.


CLEANUP: 9:30 AM–12:00 PM Sunday, Nov. 21.
