Mandarin Food Bank

MLC Disciples support the Mandarin Food Bank year round.

Thanksgiving Food Boxes for the Mandarin Food Bank – Now more than ever the need for food is evident in our community! In past years, MLC has generously participated the food bank’s Thanksgiving Box drive. While we cannot utilize the “leaf tree” in the narthex to remove leaves labeled with needed food items, we can still contribute!

Each week specific foods will be highlighted from the food bank’s Thanksgiving Box List.  If you are able, please contribute the requested items.

Oct.1 – 7 – Peanutbutter, jelly, hearty canned soup

Oct. 8 – 14 – Canned green beans, corn, mixed vegetables, fruit cocktail, cranberry sauce

Oct. 15 – 21 – Corn muffin mix, muffin papers, instant dry milk, boxed cereal

Oct. 22 – 28 – Vegetable oil, Duncan Hines carrot cake mix, Duncan Hines cream cheese frosting

Oct. 29 – Nov. 8 – Boxed stuffing, canned sweet potatoes, canned chicken gravy, large box instant potatoes

Thanksgiving Box food items may be contributed via:

·     MLC drive-in worship services 8:30 AM on 9/27, 10/11, 10/25, and 11/8

·     MLC Office – Monday thru Thursday 10:00AM – 2:00PM
