Food Bags

A shopping cart in the Vaughan Fellowship Hall holds "basic food bags" of groceries destined for the food pantry at Urban Ministries. To those basic bags, Urban Ministries adds assorted meats, fresh veggies, canned foods, and other staples – enough to feed the household for a week. Each basic food bag contains:

  • 1 lb. rice
  • 1 lb. grits
  • 1 lb. dried beans 
  • 2 cans bean (navy, pinto, kidney, etc. but NO GREEN BEANS)
  • 1 jar peanut butter
  • 2 cans tomatoes
  • 1 can carrots
  • 2 qts. dried milk
  • 2 cans or jars applesauce
  • 2 boxes mac & cheese
Please double bag for strength, whether you use paper or plastic.  If you decide to divide your list in two bags, please tie them together so we get an accurate count of how many full "orders" we provide each month.
