Food Ministry Program

In the basement of Audubon Park UMC there are a number of very special ministries that are near and dear to our hearts! The Northwest Ecumenical Food Bank, our Tuesday Morning Breakfast Breakfast, Saturday Community Lunch, and Bare Necessities Ministries. Find out more about each of these ministries below!

Food Bank

The Northwest Ecumenical Food Bank serves those who live in area codes 99205 and 99026 (Spokane County only). It is usually open on the 2nd and last Tuesday of every month, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm (for a full schedule of 2017 dates click here).

Want to help? There is always a need for volunteers. Keeping this food pantry open and running is a big job! The families we serve would love to see a smiling face and someone to talk to. So help is needed with the stocking and distribution of food as well as taking time to visit with our food bank patrons as they wait for their turn at the Tuesday Morning Breakfast. 

Contact our church office for information on how you can help!

Tuesday Morning Breakfast

Our Tuesday Morning Breakfast is available every Tuesday from 8:30-10:00 am. A hot breakfast along with coffee, tea, and pastries is served, and fresh produce, backed goods, and more is also available, even when the food bank is not open! This outreach is open to all, so please come join us!

Want to help? We'd love to have you help prepare and serve a tasty breakfast to our guests. We also need help with setup on Monday mornings, grocery recovery, and our guests love to have people visit with them Contact our church office for info on how you can help. 

Bare Necessities

Bare Necessities is a free store that supplements our Food Ministry programs by providing personal hygiene products, cleaning supplies and other non-food items. It is located in the basement of Audubon Park UMC and is open twice a month on Tuesdays. Bare Necessities follows the same schedule as the Food Bank. 

Want to help? Connect with this ministry through our Bare Necessities facebook page to find out donation needs and other ways you can help! 

Saturday Community Lunch

This meal is open to all so come join us on the third Saturday of every month for good food and fellowship! 

Want to help? We need help preparing food, serving food, and cleaning up after the lunch. Contact the church office to find out more!
