Can you spare some protein or time?

Maybe it is time to empty out the freezer and make room for this year’s catch of salmon. Did you know that the Homer Community Food Pantry provides food for 450 people per week for their basic food needs? One of the food items in short supply and yet essential for basic nutrition is protein. The food pantry would be happy to receive your salmon or other meats. Please bring them in on any Monday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. or you can call 235-1968 and make arrangements to drop it off.

Maybe you or a small group you attend would like to make a small donation or regular contribution to purchase beans or other inexpensive protein sources. You can call that same number and discuss this.

Finally, how about stopping by the Homer food pantry at Homer United Methodist Church any Monday between 9 a.m. and noon and have a rewarding morning preparing the food for distribution? You’ll enjoy the fellowship and feel rewarded.
