For almost 40 years, the members and friends of TVLC have worked to follow these commands. Their goodness and care makes TVLC’s Food Baskets and Hunger Ministry truly a living mission
Each year food boxes are delivered at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter for dozens of Tucson families in need. The families receive all the ingredients for the holiday meal as well as an additional week’s supply of groceries which includes fresh food items such as fruits and vegetables, milk, eggs, meat and cheese. In the beginning we were able to serve around 20 families and that number has grown to almost 100.
Referrals for this food basket program are received from social workers at the Tucson Unified School District, nurses from the Pima County Public Health District, and from anyone at TVLC who knows of someone in need.
In addition this ministry maintains emergency supplies on hand to help families in need for anyone stopping by the church to request assistance.
Further, we are able to help supplement supplies at Abounding Grace Lutheran Church Food Pantry
Our program is ongoing; we collect food donations year-round. The support of volunteers and the generosity of our members and friends make the program a success. We welcome all volunteers and hope you will consider joining us.
