Area food pantries answer coronavirus need while dealing with food, volunteer shortages (click here for newspaper article)
The cupboard continues to be in need for donations of cereal and juice. If you could donate some of these items, feel free to leave on the bench outside the church office. Also monetary donations are welcomed so they can give families fresh produce in the months when the Jesus Victory Garden is not producing and to buy fruit in the summer months.
In July 2014, JUMC took over the operation of the North Hills Food Cupboard (NHFC). The food cupboard is a satellite service of The Mattie Dixon Food Cupboard of Ambler. Each week the clients receive canned and nonperishable food items, as well as bread and pastries. During the growing season the clients enjoy fresh produce from the JUMC Jesus Victory Garden.
Each fall at JUMC there is a special Thanksgiving canned food drive to to provide the clients with items for Thanksgiving dinner, with the turkeys being provided by Ambler Food Cupboard. We were also able to provide Christmas turkey dinners to our clients.
Volunteers help at the cupboard on Tuesdays (for deliveries) and Thursdays for food distribution.
