Stock the Pantry Challenge

THE PANTRY CHALLENGE 2023

The Outreach Team challenges teams of Fairhaven folks to stock the pantry this winter. There are three teams:

TFT- Fairhaven Trustees

CMP – Choir, Musicians, Pastors

UMF- United Women in Faith (formerly UMW)

You may pick which team you will support by brining in food items and placing them in the bin labeled for that team.

Bins will be placed in the first-floor hallway. You do not have to support the same team each week; have fun and switch it up!

We will count how many items after church each week. The team that brings the MOST items at the end of the challenge will win a significant prize and recognition!

Here are suggestions for each week: NO GLASS PLEASE!

January 15 – canned proteins or boxed meals

January 22 – breakfast foods or canned fruits or vegetables

January 29 – peanut butter and jelly or soups

February 5 – pasta sauce, pasta, or canned pasta meals
