Morningside CARES aims to provide both perishable and nonperishable food items. We have already initiated a partnership with Feeding the Valley to acquire some food items in bulk. We will also collect nonperishable food items as donations. We will then pair these food items to prepare boxes that include a variety of foods apportioned for different households. Donated food will immediately be given out to families in need. Any unused items can and will be passed on to other ministries in Columbus (like the Columbus Baptist Association’s Food Pantry), so there is no need to house or store food on-site long term.
