Imagine not having food for a Thanksgiving Day feast.

Many in our area are struggling with food insecurity this Thanksgiving.

You can help.


Food and monetary donations are being accepted here at AdventELC and will be given to Lutheran Social Services of Central Ohio for direct food assistance.

There are TWO ways to give:


All are welcome and encouraged to donate bags of specific food items that are transported to LSS for distribution prior to Thanksgiving Day. These bags provide food for the needy so they can enjoy a Thanksgiving Dinner. 

The following items need to be in each bag: (no additional items please)

  • Two pouches of mashed potatoes (or one box)

  • One box (or bag) of stuffing (6 oz. size)

  • One gravy packet

  • Two cans of corn

  • Three cans of green beans

  • One can of cranberry sauce

  • Two cans of pumpkin

  • One boxed yellow cake mix

  • Two cans of fruit (Suggestions: peaches, applesauce, pears)


Food bags may be brought to the church beginning Sunday, November 3 until Sunday, November 24 at noon.


If you would like to simply donate money, it is needed by November 15, 2019, so that additional bags may be purchased.
