Update  from Jacob

Although our Hot Meal Programs are taking a break until January 2023, the RUMC hospitality team and kitchen crew are still cooking up some delicious meals to put in the freezer! Wednesday Night Suppers will return on Wednesday, January 11. We will start a new Sit Down or Take-Home Hot Lunch on Tuesday, January 12. Keep an eye out for upcoming details!

You can still pre-order any frozen meals by clicking the links published each  week  and frozen meals can be picked up at your convenience between the hours of 10:00 am – 3:00 pm, Monday-Thursday at the RUMC Kitchen.

MUST Neighborhood Pantry

Our next MUST Neighborhood Pantry is on Tuesday, January 3rd!

Rain prevented us from giving out the coffee and children’s pajamas at our last pantry, so we’ll continue collecting these items throughout December and give them out in January! For the Jan 3rd Pantry, we need laundry detergent, feminine hygiene products, coffee (K-cups and bags of ground coffee) and children’s pajamas (all sizes).

We will collect items the day of the pantry 12-4:00 PM. (We’re not collecting this Sunday because it is New Year’s Day). On January 3rd, we’re asking people to drop items off at the Fellowship Hall because we will operate out of the FH for the next three months (because it’s so cold)!

We always need lots of help bagging the produce, which is generally 12:00-3:00 PM. If members of CUC would like to participate, just come on in during that time! They don’t need to sign up.
