For over 20 years, St. Michael’s has participated in the Souper Bowl of Caring to help support the Northeast Emergency Food Program (NEFP), raising well over $35,000 in that time thanks to great announcements by our youth and the awesome generosity of our congregation! Did you know…
- As the most active food pantry in Oregon, Northeast Emergency Food Program (NEFP) meets the urgent food needs of nearly 10,000 people each month!
- Northeast Emergency Food Program distributes a three- to five-day (or more) supply of nutritious groceries to our neighbors in need, frequently valued over $200.
- NEFP offers a unique self-service shopping experience for our neighbors, allowing them to select their choice of fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy, bread, meat and more.
- In addition to distributing food, NEFP also develops community solutions to secure access to adequate, affordable and healthy food. They ground their work in the belief that nutritious food is a basic human need and a building block for a healthy life of possibility.
Just look for the kids with the smiling faces and the great big soup pots as you exit the church at 9 and 11 o’clock on Sunday, February 11. Every single penny we raise goes directly to the Northeast Emergency Food Program. You can always make donations online at our website. We hope you’ll join us!
