Mission Lead - Carol Bowers

Trinity United Methodist Church will be collecting non-perishable goods in our parking lot each Wednesday evening from 4 - 7 pm as it corresponds with the Food Truck events. We will continue doing so until the church building reopens. At this time, it is unclear as to where the food trucks may be setting up since there may be multiple trucks. 

Instructions to Missions Lead

Obtain the Rising Hope Food Drive sign from Pastor Grace. Park fairly close to the food trucks as we've seen that this increases the likelihood that we may get financial donations from folks who may not have known about the food drive but also keep safety in mind. Situate your car with the trunk facing the parking lot and have it open.  Instruct individuals to stay in their cars and when it's their turn, place their bags in your trunk. You may need to adjust the contents as time goes on.

Rising Hope is open from Tuesday thru Friday from 9:30-4:00 for delivery.   When you get there, drive around to the rear of the building and ring the doorbell if the door is not open.  A member of the Rising Hope volunteer staff weighs each bag and will give you a receipt with the total weight if you ask.  They seem to have this down to a science.  


The current needs include the following:

  • Canned meats (tuna, chicken, spam, ravioli, soups containing meat)
  • Pasta, rice, dry beans
  • Canned tomato products (sauce, tomato paste, whole/diced/crushed tomatoes)
  • Canned vegetables, fruits, beans
  • Cereal
  • Powdered drink mix
  • Powdered iced tea mix
  • Coffee
  • Tea bags
  • Peanut butter, jelly
  • Salad dressing – Italian and Ranch preferred
  • Dish soap, “pot scrubbers”
  • Toothpaste
  • Deodorant
