Food and Book Drive

We are collecting food for the Food Bank of Manatee.  The drive begins Sunday, March 30th and will run through Easter.

Items most needed:  pasta, healthy cereal, tuna and other canned meat and fish, peanut butter, rice, 100% fruit juice (cans, bottles, boxes), canned goods, flour, and sugar.  The food bank cannot accept rusty or unlabeled cans, perishable items, or glass items.

Also, “Royalty for Reading” is a program that encourages children to read.  The food baskets that are sent out include a used children’s book that is gender and age appropriate.  We will have a separate bin the church foyer for books.
