Picking Picks up in the San Gabriel Valley

Thank you to all who volunteered with Food Forward in September! We are so glad you could lend a hand in rescuing fresh produce for those in need.

Through our Backyard Harvest and Farmers Market Recovery events, volunteers saved 46,023 pounds of fruits and vegetables from going to waste in September. On average, 119 pounds of fresh produce was recovered during each volunteer's shift last month! Now, that's something to pat yourself on the back for.

Not only did you stop 46,000 pounds of fresh produce from going into the trash, you helped to feed Angelinos in need, like the clients of OPCC in Santa Monica. OPCC is the largest provider of housing and social services on LA's Westside and the produce they receive from our Pacific Palisades Farmers Market Gleans helps to feed those living in their permanent supportive housing.

Thank you for your support of Food Forward! We hope to see you at another event soon: http://foodforward.org/events/                                                                                  -Your friends at Food Forward


A Thank You To SMCC
From La Casa de San Gabriel
Community Center

La Casa de San Gabriel Community Center

Dear Members of the Congregation,

You are so incredibly generous in your donations of food to La Casa de San Gabriel Community Center! When Carol Barrett arrived in her Honda yesterday, it appeared to be really heavily loaded, and it did seem to lighten up after we all joined in and filled our pantry.

Your outreach to your neighbors is to be commended. Our resource-poor families are blessed by your generosity.

May I share a bit of ancient wisdom with you as a thank you to all of you?

   May the kindness of God precede you.
   May the wisdom of God be with you.
   May the light of God follow you.

With appreciation,

Cheryl Prentice, CEO
La Casa de San Gabriel Community Center

Dear Friends At San Marino Congregational UCC,

Thank you very much for your Easter Baskets and candy donations. We had a very successful Easter
Basket Give-A-Way in which we gave out more than 230 baskets. We were also able to hand out almost as many Easter bags to the adults in our community.

Your support and donations made my job easier and very rewarding when I saw all the smiles. Thank
you for helping us continue to serve our community.

Best regards from Tim, Food Pantry Director


You can make a real difference in our community! CAN do!

Dear Friends,
The food we bring to support the Elizabeth Rose Cameron Food Bank memoralizes someone we loved. It also feeds hungry people. We alternate taking food to a service agency north of Huntington and south of Huntington. Recently the Director of La Casa said that a number of folks who previously supported La Casa De San Gabriel's food program have pulled back. There are only two of us still providing donations. The need is so great and many of our kitchen cabinets are so full. Please make a difference. Bring a donation every Sunday.
Carol D. Barrett

Liz Cameron Food Closet

Our LCFC ("Liz Cameron Food Closet") project continues! Thanks to everyone who is remembering to bring canned, non-perishable foods to church every Sunday along with your extra change. You are making a difference!
