Support our ELCA World Hunger Daily Bread Matching Grant fundraiser to benefit SLC Hearty Meals
"And taking the five loaves and the two fish, [Jesus] looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. And all ate and were filled. What was left over was gathered up, twelve baskets of broken pieces" (Luke 9:16-17).
As part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's (ELCA) ongoing response to hunger in communities across the United States and the Caribbean, our congregation is partnering with ELCA World Hunger to raise funds for our feeding ministry through a Daily Bread Matching Grant.
What is the Silverdale Lutheran Hearty Meals story?? A story of God's grace shared through a nutritious, "hearty" lunch with those in our community experiencing food insecurity. A story of many faithful volunteers who have yearly given 2,000+ hours to serve our neighbors every Wednesday at noon for the past 27 years. A story of adapting to provide "to-go" lunches throughout the pandemic as folks drive/walk to our campus. A story of daily bread, community resources and a caring presence as we connect with individuals and families to make a difference.
We need your help to make sure we generate the maximum amount of support for our neighbors experiencing enduring economic and health challenges. ELCA World Hunger is kickstarting our fundraiser with a $500 grant. With your help, we can raise $500 or more to match the grant from ELCA World Hunger. We have until Sunday, June 20th to meet our goal. Every gift truly makes a difference — thank you for your support!
