Summer Harvest Food Ministry

Many Children depend on the school for food.  When school is out, that source of nutrition goes away.  North Shore has identified a number of students and their families in our area that need food support.


We are asking for food donations of any of the items listed so we can stock our pantry initially. This will be an ongoing need, so while we will need supplies to start the program on June 5, the program will extend through the end of August – Approximately 12 weeks. Our goal is to provide a minimum of 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches per student and one family meal to each family unit who comes to us.


We will also be looking for volunteers to help distribute food and build relationships with these families. The distribution days are Wednesday from noon – 6 (Two – 3 hr/shifts) and Thursday from noon – 3. So, if you have the time, we will let you know how you can sign up to volunteer to be a part of this service to our community.

We have prepared a list of items we are collecting to stock the Summer Harvest Pantry. Please bring only the items listed here as we are seeking to create a standard set of foods to distribute on a weekly basis. Having similar foods will help tremendously.


Here is the list of items:

16 oz jar – peanut butter

Jams/jellies

Canned Green beans

Canned Corn – any style

Canned Beans

Soup – Vegetable, Chicken Noodle, Chicken & Rice, preferred

Canned Pasta - Spaghetti, ravioli, spaghetti-o-s

Tuna, chicken

Canned Fruit

Boxed Cereals

Macaroni & Cheese


If you don’t have the opportunity to get by the store this week, no worries. We will accept donations for the project and use those funds to buy fresh foods on a weekly basis.  Thank you for supporting “Summer Harvest” and continuing to spread hope by being the hands and feet of Jesus here at Canyon Lake.
