Food Pantry Collection

On the first Sunday of each month, you are invited to bring donations for the Food Pantry located at Rindge Towers in Cambridge. Low-income residents at the Towers welcome such items as peanut butter, cooking oil, hearty soups and other high-protein foods, canned fruit—and such small treats as instant coffee and cookies. It is important that you check to be sure that all donated items are unexpired, unopened, and unbreakable.

Bring your donations to church on the first Sunday of each month and put them in the basket that you will find in the entry. The following week they are brought to the pantry by a member of the congregation.

Add an item or two to your shopping list each week!
