Sunday, January 5 ~ First Sunday Food Sharing

Food: The kinds of food you stock up on depends on your ability to cook and/or boil water, and if you have a way to keep food cold. In general, you should stock up on non-perishable, ready-to-eat food. FEMA suggests you have at least a three-day supply of food for each person. I prefer to have a few days more. If anyone in your house has special dietary needs, like an infant or an elderly person, you’ll need to stock up for them. What you don’t use can be donated to your local food pantry. Don’t forget a manual can opener. Use a cooler and ice to keep perishable food cold. [Herald-Tribune staff photo / Mike Lang]

First Sunday Food Sharing

More than eight percent of households in Massachusetts experience “food insecurity,” a measurement that captures the degree to which an individual or family cannot obtain adequate nutritious food for a healthy life.

The Unitarian Church of Marlborough and Hudson collects food on the first Sunday of each month. You are welcome to bring food items to the morning worship at 10:30am.  To arrange a drop-off at other times, please contact the church office at 978.562.9180.
