FISH Adopt a Shelf Program ….Soup….This summer June, July and August, First Lutheran is participating in FISH Food Bank’s adopt a shelf program. Starting Thursday, June 14th we will be bringing canned soup to help fill our shelf at the food bank. These need to be pull-top cans of soup. This shelf holds all kinds of soups, from broth to hearty vegetable to meaty Italian wedding soup. Think of wholesome and filling soups, like barley or rice and chicken, lentils, bean soup and chicken noodle. Generic is fine, and bringing one or two kinds will also work. This shelf holds a lot! Please just bring them to church with you and fill our food bank box by the office door. We need to provide at least 50 cans a week.

Soup on a Shelf: Instead of hosting a week to serve food, the FISH Food bank is having us adopt a shelf in their pantry. We get to fill the soup shelf! The food bank would like about 50 cans a week. If we all bring one can to church on Sunday, how much soup would we have? As youth, think of your favorite soup and grab a can or two for our shelf! We will be picking up our favorite: chicken and stars or Mario Chicken Noodle!
