Canned Meat Collection Continues Through 2021

Canned Meat Celebration

Support the CCA Food Pantry

Thanks to the generosity of our church members, Vista Ridge UMC was able to donate 7,000 canned meat items to the Christian Community Action (CCA) Food Pantry during 2020. The total does not include the thousands of items collected during our Holiday Food Drive at Market Street last fall.

Throughout 2021, the church will continue to support the CCA Food Pantry in a variety of ways, including the donation of canned meat items to help stock the pantry shelves for those needing food assistance.

Canned Meat Donations | Donations are collected year-round, with an emphasis on the second Sunday of the month. Mark your calendar and challenge yourself to donate canned meat each month. All donations directly benefit those living in our community. Leave canned meat donations in the grocery cart in the front of the church at any time.

Volunteer at the CCA Food Pantry | Church members also work at the food pantry the second and fourth Mondays of each month throughout the year. Currently, a team of three assists pantry staff with the distribution of grocery items to the CCA angels.

Loaves and Fishes Ministry | The Loaves and Fishes Team picks up bread and produce donations from local grocery stores on weekday mornings and delivers to the CCA Food Pantry. There is a current need for volunteers, including people who are willing to help regular drivers when they need a substitute.
