Harvest for Hunger Drive

Current times are different in so many ways, but hunger within our community persists. Please help us continue to serve those who are food insecure. Our annual Harvest for Hunger continues until November 22, which is Dedication Day. This year we are in need of food donations for our Blessings Boxes and monetary donations for our City Meats food vouchers. Each voucher costs $45.

Harvest for Hunger bags are available for pickup in the Parlor. To arrange drop-off, please call Lisa Holloway at 933-3725, Mon-Fri 8:30-4:30. Checks should be made to IPC (Harvest for Hunger in the memo line). Please click on the article below for more details and a list of suggested food items. Monetary donations can be made by clicking on "Give Online" in the top right corner of this website and selecting "Food Pantry" in the dropdown menu. Thank you very much for helping us and our neighbors!
