Food Pantry Weekly Needs
The number of people needing help seems to remain constant, faces may change but the numbers don't. The mild winter has helped with heating costs. More money in peoples pockets means the more they can do for themselves. We seem to be seeing more people out of work. I don't know if that is a weather issue or not.
Spaghetti Sauce ( Hannaford and Shaws both have 24oz. cans of Hunts Spagetti Sauce for $.99 ) and stuffing mix, like Stove Top, are always needed/ Anything is appreciated, those are easy meal starters. We can't do a lot, but we try to help however we can.

Bread for the Journey Food Pantry -- June 2016
Warren Food Pantry is now open 9 to 11 Thursday mornings and on the first Thursday of the month it is open from 5 to 7 in the evening as well. Finding enough volunteers to keep the pantry open those extra hours is always a challenge. After the food pantry closes for the day any leftover perishables are taken to Hospitality House in Rockport. There is a large number of homeless people in our area; Hospitality House uses these food idems to help provide food for them.
Bread for the Journey benefited from the Post Office, Food Drive, and Ocean State Job Lots donation and from a government shipment. Its alway interesting to see what is donated.
We continue to need canned cream soups, stuffing mix, and pasta sauce, really anything non-perishable is needed. The basic home pantry items are the "go to” needs each week.
Volunteers are always needed. Come and join us, we have a good time. Gayle White
Our 5th Sunday Mission was devoted to the Old Brick School ministry. Having Bill and Delia participate in our service and then take us on a tour of the school was wonderful. Their passion and commitment to this ministry is indeed a lesson in faith.
And having so many of our congregation make the trek up the hill showed our sincere interest in what our sister church is doing.
