PB County Food Project

OCTOBER 10th - FOOD BAG DROP OFF at

OCEANVIEW CHURCH UPPER LEVEL

OCTOBER FOOD COLLECTION - 10 AM TO NOON


Please bring your PBC Food Project Food Bags, filled with healthy canned goods (see pbcfp website below for list of needed items)

Drive to the Upper Level. Please stay in your car and a masked volunteer will take your food donations (in bags) from your car. Then you will drive off. Easy. Needed.

Our partner food pantries are struggling due to the added number of people needing food as many unemployed person's federal benefits run out. With the possible elimination of eviction protection, the number of homeless and hungry people will likely increase. Therefore, we need to raise funds. The money raised will be used to provide the much-needed food without putting any of our Food Project volunteers in an environment that could endanger their health.


From April to June we were able to raise some $30,000, which supported our partner pantries by giving them cash to purchase much needed items in bulk for their distribution to the hungry. We were also able to provide some 33,000 meals of chicken ramen noodle soup. The ten pallets of soup went a long way in the food programs of CROS Ministries, More Than Conquerors Life Center, Extended Hands Community Outreach and the MCC food pantry! 


Please help by making a financial donation. Here is how you can give:
