Here's how some communities do it!
    Food Drives       (see items included in nutritiously designed meal bags)
    Organize a collection of food items and money
  • on-going, weekly or monthly collections of non-perishable foods
  • quarterly or occasional Special offerings and collections
  • hunger awareness events asking for donations
  • Soup-er Bowl Sunday offerings

    Educational Programs and Events
    Help everyone understand the root causes of poverty, hunger, and homelessness:
  • Invite Director, Barbara Dublin to speak
  • Participate in 30 hour Famine, 24 Hour sleep out, Walk a thons, Interfaith
    opportunities
  • Volunteer at GWIM and see first hand or
  • just visit, please call 203-757-7734 first
  • Come to a Delegates' meeting - Next meeting is Thursday April 12, 2018
                      at First Congregational Church, Waterbury

Preparing and/or Serving a Meal
     Some are able to put a whole meal together and others contribute parts which
     together make a nutritious dinner for all:
  • preparing casseroles and other dishes to serve 200
  • packing bag lunches for 250
  • helping to prepare and or serve a holiday meal
         
       
    WAY TO GO!
    Thank you!!
  •   UCC of Southbury brought
    winter wear, diapers, books.
    Thanks.
  •   South Britain Congregational
    Church for providing PBJ
    sandwiches and more. Thank
    you.         
  •    Cross of Christ Lutheran of
    Waterbury for supplying
    lunches for 2 Sundays a month!
  •    First Congregational for
    serving hot meals on the
    holidays!
  •      Prospect providing
    casseroles each month to
    serve hundreds.

    Think about asking your
    community to supply a Sunday
    lunch. It would save GWIM a lot
    of dollars and you can have fun
    working together. Nothing
    brings people together (and
    helps them "stick" together)
    like peanut butter and jelly!!

    Other items for lunches
    include: juice box, granola bar,
    and pudding or fruit snack.
The Food Pantry provides
3 meals for each family
member for four days, or
twelve meals for each.
