Church looking to help local food bank
By Morinville News Staff
Morinville – Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be hitting doorsteps Oct. 13, collecting food to help restock local food bank shelves depleted after Thanksgiving.
Last year’s food drive raised 3,320 pounds of food for the Morinville Food Bank Society, and the church is looking to help once again.
As was the case last year, church members are hoping to every home they can. Neighbourhoods where collections will take place will be notified by a flyer in their mailbox in the days leading up to the collection.
All that is needed to participate is to leave non-perishable food items on the porch or doorstep so they are visible from the street by 10 a.m. when the collection will take place.
The church is looking for items, including canned fruits and vegetables, canned fish or meats, jars of peanut butter, bottles of pasta sauce, and boxes of dried
The church members are once again doing the food pick up as a way to emulate Jesus Christ by serving their fellow man.
