Lord’s Cupboard preparing for Holiday Meal Boxes

Nov 20, 2017

FAIRFIELD — In December, the Lord’s Cupboard will distribute hundreds of Holiday Meal Boxes to low-income households in Jefferson County.

Between now and Dec. 6, the Jefferson County community is invited to donate the non-perishable items still needed for the 500 Boxes: tuna 5 oz., chicken Noodle soup 10.5 oz. can, tomato soup 10.5 oz. can, diced Tomatoes 14.5 oz., “Helper” for hamburger, tuna or chicken (boxed), spaghetti sauce (canned only), vegetables 15 oz. (corn or green beans).

Monetary donations are greatly needed as the boxes contain many fresh items which must be purchased. Those wishing to sponsor a family’s Holiday Meal Box for only $28.00 can donate in person, by mail at 303 N. Fourth St. in Fairfield, or online at www.LordsCupboard.org.

Volunteers are needed at the annual packing of the boxes on Thursday, Dec. 14. Volunteers should arrive at the Nazarene Center (Briggs and 6th) by 5:30 p.m. wearing comfortable shoes and a jacket. Up-to-date information about donating and volunteering can be found on The Lord’s Cupboard’s Facebook page.

The Lord’s Cupboard of Jefferson County is the county’s emergency food pantry and distributes about 6,000 food orders per year. Nearly half of those served by the pantry are under the age of 18. Donations of food or cash are always accepted at The Lord’s Cupboard, 303 N. Fourth St. in Fairfield, Monday through Friday, 1 to 4 p.m. Credit card donations are gladly accepted at www.LordsCupboard.org. Please contact Laura Cohen (LordsCupboard@LISCO.com) at 641-472-8457 for more information.
