Trinity Food Shelf (year round) & Brainerd Area Food Drive (March)

Matthew 25:37 and 40 - "....Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? ....I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."

Many years ago Trinity established a food shelf...

... for people that are need of food in an emergency situation. People come to the church office seeking our help. These people often times have no other food in the house.
Can you imagine being in a situation where you would have to respond to "WHAT'S FOR SUPPER? with, we have nothing to eat. Our food shelf is supported by food and monetary donations from church members.
We proclaim the first Sunday of the month as Food Shelf Sunday but it is O.K. to bring food any time. A shopping cart (near the office entrance) is provided for you to place your items in. When someone seeks food we provide them with a grocery bag filled with items for one day's meals (breakfast, lunch and supper).
