What is Share the Plate? During each Sunday service, we take a collection. This voluntarily given money is then shared between our congregation and an organization from the local community which has goals that align with Unitarian Universalist principles. This month’s Share the Plate recipient is Marion Polk Food Share.
Marion Polk Food Share collects and distributes food to a network of more than 100 partner agencies. Support from the community makes it possible for the Food Share to distribute food to meal sites, food pantries, foster homes, low-income day care centers, shelters, and senior housing sites across the Mid-Valley. They also operate Meals on Wheels in Salem and Keizer, which delivers meals to seniors and disabled adults. and supports programs that address the root causes of hunger.
Please consider making a separate, one-time donation this month with Marion Polk Food Share on the memo line, or as a Share the Plate donation.
