SCUCC, Bat Yam to host no-contact food drop off

By Staff | Jul 1, 2020

Even as businesses slowly reopen, the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact many island and local neighbors’ abilities to purchase necessities, such as food.

The Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ and Bat Yam Temple of the Islands is offering the community a chance to help those facing food insecurity by hosting a no-contact food drop off.

It will be held on July 2 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at SCUCC, at 2050 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.

The public is asked to put their food donations in the truck or rear of their vehicle. Upon arrival at the church, gloved and masked volunteers will unload the items. There is no need to exit the vehicle.

The donations will split between F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva and the Gladiolus Food Pantry.

Prepackaged food and paper products items are welcome. The following are especially needed: peanut butter, children’s cereal, cooking oil, pasta, canned vegetables, beans, canned chicken, and crackers.

For more information, contact Associate Pastor Deb Kunkel at 239-472-0497 or deb@sanibelucc.org.
