SUMC at the Soup Kitchen
SUMC serves at the Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen the third Monday of each month.
We have four teams that supply food items. The teams rotate, so each team supplies food items three times a year. A post card is sent out a week before the supplies are needed. The items are dropped off in the church kitchen the Sunday before we serve. If you would like to be added to a food supply team you can call the church office (429-5911).
A yearly budget from missions also helps with food supplies. Often members make donations specifically for our Soup Kitchen’s supplies. We also make use of Feeding America (formerly known as Southwest Gleaners) Feeding America enables us to purchase many supplies for about 16 cents a pound. Any donation made by individuals to Feeding America that designates Stevensville U.M.C. (account # 40242) enables us to purchase supplies, and the donation can be used as a deduction for their income taxes.
THANK YOU to all who have contributed time, money,
food supplies or prayers for this mission.
