The men’s fellowship holds an annual food drive to support Spooner House. The drive begins at the annual Spaghetti Dinner in September and will culminate in October, with the annual Harvest Lunch after Church. The Lunch will feature homemade soups and bread provided by Men’s Fellowship. We ask that people attending the lunch bring a salad or a dessert.

Thank you for your participation in the drive. Please make sure your food donation has a reasonable shelf life. We cannot accept homemade or open items.

Items that Spooner House is looking for include: Canned Soups, Stews, Chili, Tuna, Chicken, Meat/Spam, Pasta Sauce, Corned Beef Hash, Peanut Butter, Jam/Jelly, Potatoes, Beans, and Fruit.

Boxed items include: Mac and Cheese, Rice, Pasta, Instant Potatoes, Cereal, Oatmeal, Coffee and Tea.

People wishing to make a cash donation can send a check directly to Spooner House, at 30 Todd Road, Shelton CT 06484. Please inform Bill More that you have made a cash donation so that we can gauge the success of our drive. Thank you.

Columbus House Outreach Cooking Schedule

Once again, we must thank all our committees for cooking and serving at Columbus House. This ministry of our church happens on the Sunday before the third Monday of every month. Henry Gates has been so generous in shopping every month so that all we need to do is cook on Sunday and serve on Monday! Each committee chairman will receive by email or snail mail instructions and directions approximately 10 days before they are to cook and serve. The following committees are scheduled for September Through August:
