On Saturday morning April 30, 2016, you are invited to join us in our group gleaning day of the year with C.R.O.S. Ministries. Gleaning is the ancient, biblical practice of picking produce from a field that has already been harvested. Less than grocery-store-perfect peppers, cucumbers, and corn are picked, boxed and distributed to the hungry in Palm Beach County. We will not know until the week before where we will be gleaning. If you are interested in participating, contact Ginny Somerville, Janet Lisle, or email us to let us know you will be participating.

CROS Ministries End Hunger Walk 2015

 

endhungerwalk2015

This year, we will once again be participating in Christian Reaching Out to Society’s End Hunger Walk on Sunday, October 11 at 3:00 PM. The End Hunger Walk is a 5K (3.1 miles) along Flagler Drive. We walk rain or shine. Walkers are encouraged to make banners, posters, and/or tee-shirts to identify themselves. Each walker is encouraged to collect a minimum of $100 in monetary pledges for their participation as well as a can of tuna or jar of peanut butter. All funds raised at the Walk go to support CROS Ministries’ programs. For more information or to sign up, please contact Janet Lisle.

Since 1978, CROS Ministries has provided food and basic needs assistance to people living in food insecure and low-income households in South Florida. Utilizing the talents of more than 3,000 volunteers, our programs help families and individuals from falling into the downward spiral of poverty, food insecurity, and in many cases homelessness. They include: seven community food pantries; The Caring Kitchen, a hot meal and social services program, summer camps, an after-school snack program, a weekend food backpack program, and a gleaning and food recovery program. All services are provided without regard to race, religion, national origin, marital status, gender, disability, sexual orientation, or age.
