Saturday Food Run

In 2006, Dames Cathy Cochran-Lewis and Pamela Nevarez-Fisher started our primary Outreach Program called Saturday Outreach Food Run. Every Saturday, volunteers meet at Wheatsville Co-op and pick up grocery donations that we deliver to University United Methodist Church’s Outreach Ministries that feeds over 200 people. This grassroots program has become a vital link to the community to help feed homeless and disadvantaged families.

We also do a Holiday Dinner every year between Thanksgiving and Christmas where our members provide side dishes, bread, and desserts and help serve  a beautiful gathering of over 250 people to celebrate the Holidays.
