In the basement of Audubon Park UMC there are three very special ministries that are near and dear to our hearts! The Audubon Park Food Bank, our Tuesday Morning Breakfast, and Bare Necessities Ministries. Find out more about each of these ministries below!
Each month hundreds of pounds of food are donated and distributed through the Audubon Park Food Bank. The Food Bank works with Second Harvest to provide healthy food to those in our service area.
The Audubon Park Food Bank is open on the 2nd and last Tuesday of each month from 9:30 am - 12:30 pm. Zip Codes served: 99026 (Nine Mile Falls, Spokane County only), 99205 (north of Montgomery, west of Division). No appointment is necessary. We serve clients one time per month.
You can find our current Food Bank Calendar here.
Want to help? There is always a need for volunteers. Keeping this food pantry open and running is a big job! Volunteer opportunities include stocking and distribution of food or simply visiting with the families while they wait.
Contact our church office for more information on how you can help!
Our Tuesday Morning Breakfast is available every Tuesday from 8:30-10:00 am.
What began as an offer of a hot cup of coffee and a dry, warm place to wait for the food bank has transformed into a weekly hot breakfast, produce and baked goods program. Each week truckloads of groceries are collected, weighed, sorted and handed out to those in need.
Open to all, the mission of this ministry is to treat everyone with respect and dignity. Volunteers provide a friendly atmosphere where all are welcomed. They work diligently to feed the guests body and soul.
Volunteers are always needed to collect and sort food and donations on Mondays, serve food on Tuesdays, or clean up afterwards. Contact the office for more information.
The mission of the Bare Necessities is to support the Audubon Park Food Bank clients by offering personal hygiene and household cleaning products, because every person has the right to feel clean.
The Bare Necessities is a free store that offers the “Basics” to those who come to utilize our food bank. Sandi Nicol, a church member, realized after a tooth brush drive that the clients probably need them, as well as, other hygiene and cleaning supplies on a regular basis, just like we all do. She started taking donations for these items and now hosts the Bare Necessities Non-Food Pantry twice a month, where guest can “shop” from the donated items.
Want to help? If you are friendly and willing to help people shop and
answer simple questions about products, consider volunteering with the Bare
Necessities or if you would like to donate items contact the church office.
You can also connect with this ministry through our Bare Necessities facebook page to find out donation needs and other ways you can support this ministry.
