Important Comida Budget Update

Thank you to everyone who supports Comida para Cherryland with your time, talent, and treasure. The average monthly grocery costs for Comida para Cherryland is $1120. Based on current projections, we have enough funds available to cover grocery costs through June 12, 2019. Now would be a great time to give or give again to support the Comida if you are able.

The direct costs of the Comida are solely supported by donations from members and friends (not the church’s annual budget). A contribution of $5 buys one bag for the average size family served (7-9 members—mostly children) and includes one bag of rice and one bag of beans, a can of peanut butter, a can of tuna, a can of tomato product, oatmeal, fresh fruit and vegetables, and a bag of chicken legs.

Contributions may be made by mailing contributions to the church, online, or via our Church app.

Please make checks payable to Eden United Church of Christ and note “Comida” on the envelope or check. For information about the budget, see the Rev. Rob Parrish. To discuss a financial contribution to the Comida, see Jan Bass.
