Berkeley Food Pantry will have its summer work day on August 4th from 9:30 AM to 12:00 noon. We will have bagels and coffee in the morning to help us start our day. First Congregational Church’s Young Adult Group will be at the work day to help, so please come to enjoy volunteering and getting to know our First Congregational Church friends. If you are interested in helping, please speak to Dharma Galang, Director.

Also, the Berkeley Neighborhood Food Project “Harvest” Day will be on August 11th from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM. We need more volunteers in August because our regular crew is on vacation. If you are interested in helping, please speak to Dharma Galang, Director.

Safeway’s Feed the Need campaign is now under way through July 31. This summer the Berkeley Food Pantry is a recipient of donated food from Safeway Community Market at 1850 Solano Ave. and Safeway Community Market at 1550 Shattuck Ave. in Berkeley. As a reminder, customers can remove a tear sheet and donate $1, $5 or $10 at checkout. All donations will be rolled up to a $10 bag. Thank you for your ongoing support of the Berkeley Food Pantry.

Now that Micah Bales and Faith Kelly have accepted our call to become co-pastors of Berkeley Friends Church, everyone is encouraged to read Micah’s blog. Micah welcomes phone calls: see Tomi!
