Food Closet

The Church Office receives calls nearly everyday for food referrals from the United Way of the Virginia Peninsula, whose First Call program has been the number one source for referral to community services for residents of the Virginia Peninsula for the past 20 years.

Hidenwood’s Food Closet is entirely dependent on donations from the congregation. Our Preschool children bring peanut butter and jelly as an offering during their chapel time twice monthly. Through monetary donations to the Food Closet, the Mission Committee is able to purchase perishable items for the holiday meals and purchase staple items when our food inventory is running low.

Donations can be brought to the church office during the week, or you may place your donations in the wicker baskets in the narthex on Sunday mornings. Many thanks for your donations!

Rise Against Hunger

Don Kane

Hundreds of volunteers have turned out over the past few years to package up over 100,000 meals! They filled bags with a nutritious mix of dry soup ingredients, sealed them, packed them into crates, ready to go directly to hungry people around the world.

Hundreds, maybe thousands, of people donated their change, and more, at locations all across the Peninsula — to fund these meals at 35 cents each.

Our coordinator, Don Kane, is to be commended for his year-round advocacy of Rise Against Hunger.
