We have been so blessed with generosity here at Norval United, and so

all donations/offering received on Thanksgiving (October 10th) and World Food Sunday (October 17th) are being directed towards two Mission and Service Projects through the United Church of Canada, addressing issues of food security for our Indigenous siblings.

Read on for information about each project.

Wasauksing First Nation U.C. Food Bank

The Wasauksing First Nation United Church near Parry Sound, ON, hosts a food bank for people in need. Their pantry provides meat (including wild game), milk, fresh fruit and vegetables, and eggs, as well as canned food and other staples. During COVID-19, they deliver so that families can remain safe in their homes. A gift of $30 helps one family feel more secure by providing a week’s supply of fresh and staple foods.

Food For The Far North

Families in the fly-in communities of Northern Manitoba can go hungry even when food is available in local stores, because high prices make groceries inaccessible. Food transport disruptions caused by COVID-19 have only made food more expensive. Helping people in the Far North get all the food they need, each Gift of $10 purchases one grocery gift card for a family in the far north.

Stay tuned for our Christmas giving opportunities. We are blessed to be a blessing!

Share your food with hungry people. 
Provide homeless people with a place to stay. 
Give naked people clothes to wear. 
Provide for the needs of your own family. 
Then the light of my blessing will shine on you like the rising sun.
—Isaiah 58:7-8 (NIRV)
