FOOD BANK OF DELAWARE

CHILDREN AT RISK HUNGER PROGRAM


Please join ICH in helping the Food Bank of Delaware provide children at-risk of hunger with nutritious, easy to prepare food for preparation and consumption at home. The Food Bank of Delaware provides food for children in need for weekends, holidays and when school is not in session. Some of their objectives are to reduce health problems in children who are undernourished, reduce the barrier of hunger that contributes to poor school performance, and directly empower school personnel to take direct action to benefit hungry children. ICH will provide backpacks available in the foyer to fill with items. We will be collecting food items until the end of August.

- Microwaveable Macaroni and Cheese

- Microwaveable Spaghetti and Meatballs

- Granola bars

- Apple Sauce

- Cheese Crackers or Peanut Butter crackers

- Cereal

- Shelf stable milk and juice

Thanks for supporting and making an impact on a child's life journey.

Faithfully,

Connie Shultz

Outreach Ministry


SUMMER CHOIR

The parish choir is taking a break for the summer, but we have an impromptu choir with a "One Song, One Sunday" commitment - all parishioners are invited. We rehearse before the service to learn a simple hymn or anthem to present in worship that day. If you enjoy singing and would like to do this in the summer, speak to Steven Patchel or just show up one Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m.
