January Open Plate to give away on the 28th

This month we have the unique opportunity to assist a fellow UU congregation. Since 2013 the Akron church (UUCA) has offered a seated, restaurant-style meal to a community which extends far beyond the Akron area. This manner of serving encourages increased social interaction and community building, and, as such, has received much positive feedback. After dining, attendees may take home items which they personally select from the UUCA food pantry. The church’s cost for each meal plus pantry items averages $2.17. Because of an annual UUCA matching funds grant, any financial donation is eligible for matching funds. As such our donation will go twice as far in helping this worthy program. Here is yet another way for us to address Ohio’s food insecurity, a major concern of your Social Action committee.
