Food Insecurity

Bag Lunches for Manna House – on the last Sunday of each month, volunteers meet at UUCC at 7:30am to assemble hundreds of bag lunches for Manna House in Baltimore.  Join us any time!

Got Your Back…Pack – UUCC volunteers gather, sort, and pack a variety of specific food staples for children at our local schools (Cradlerock Elementary, in our backyard, and Talbott Springs Elementary nearby) to take home for the weekends.  This food helps families, who rely on the Free and Reduced-price Meal program on weekdays, ensure that their children will have nutritious meals on the weekends too.  Click here for the list of requested food.

Little Free Pantry – We stock a Little Free Pantry right outside the main entrance to the Owen Brown Interfaith Center.  If you need something, take something.  If you have something to share, leave a donation.

Rise Against Hunger – on the Sunday afternoon of MLK Weekend, UUCC members of all ages gather to pack thousands of meals that are distributed world-wide.

No Child Goes Hungry – During her tenure at UUCC, our former Assistant Minister, Rev. Kären Rasmussen, launched an independent non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating childhood hunger.  Learn more here.

The Food Insecurities team meets on the second Wednesday of every month at OBIC. For more information, email FoodInsecurity@uucolumbia.net.
