Zia Food Drive

Zia was created in 2015 to address food insecurity, a major issue for many Philadelphians, especially children.  First Church is sponsoring a food drive from October 6 through November 3 for Zia’s food bank operated at Laura W. Waring Elementary School.  This food bank provides the ingredients for 8-10 meals a month for almost 30 member families.  The following non-perishable items can be dropped off in Old Buttonwood Hall and will be added to fresh food that Zia secures for the Food Bank, to provide complete balanced meals:

Skippy peanut butter
Welch’s grape jelly
Swanson chicken or beef broth
Ken’s Italian dressing
Hellmann’s Mayonnaise
Parmalat Milk
Spices (cinnamon, oregano, garlic powder, chili powder, etc.)
