Second Harvest in Need...

Good Morning,

Last fall when I first went to Second Harvest to get the first batch of food for our feeding program at Central Methodist Church  "Shalom Ministry"   the shelves at the main supply depot were modestly full.  It is not unlike a "Big Box" store, and was piled high from floor to ceiling with pallets of various canned goods, rice, beans and staples such as flour and masa.  Yesterday upon making a Second Harvest run, we found no food in the walk in refrigerator and the produce on the front floor that is provided for free was not present.  Today on arrival there were some varied milk products in the walkin and produce and fruit.  We start our feeding program for the year on this coming Monday, and while our shelves at the Church are stocked for a start up, there are deep concerns for the increased number of persons who will likely come to our door to be fed.   We are pretty good at the "Loaves and Fishes" routine, but would appreciate any letters to the editor, or your Church Boards and Congregations to allow us to continue to minister to our "Community of Other",  the people we are called to serve.
