Project 5000 has begun! Based on an unforgettable experience in the life of Jesus – the feeding of the 5,000 – this food drive encourages us to give our own small contribution of food and see it multiplied into greater usefulness. Each box of food is designed to provide emergency food for a family of four for two days.
If you have participated in Project 5000 before, you may notice that this year is a little different. The IFC has moved to their new building in Carrboro and the needs of the Community Market (formerly Pantry) have changed. Because of Covid, the best way to support the Market and contribute food is to purchase groceries and have them shipped directly to the IFC. You may use your favorite online grocery source or click here for the IFC’s amazon wish list.
If you prefer to fill traditional Project 5000 boxes, click here for the 2021 food list. You may pick up boxes and food lists at the church from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays (this is meant to be a contact-less experience), as well as anytime from Jeff and Karin Foarde’s carport at 1404 Wildwood Dr, Chapel Hill. Boxes or doubled paper grocery bags (so they do not rip) may be returned to the Foardes’. No need to call first, but Jeff’s cell is 919-619-1445 (text preferable) if you have questions.
Substitutions are fine! The IFC has a more general grocery list that they update regularly.
Thank you for your support of this important ministry!
