Food Boxes - Homeless Bag


The Missions and Outreach Team maintain a supply of food boxes and food bags for those in need.  These are distributed on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from the church office. 

If you are willing to sign up to work a two hour shift on a Wednesday or Thursday, please call the church office (714-776-5710).  Thank you!


The second Sunday of each month is “FOOD BOX SUNDAY”.  If you would like to donate food or monies for the food boxes or the sack lunches that we give out on Wednesdays and Thursdays please bring them on the 2nd Sunday each month.  Please mark your money envelopes "Food Box".

Twice a month, we package food boxes for low-income (Food Boxes) and homeless families (Homeless Bag).  These boxes full of donated food are dropped off a the Salvation Army and the Downtown Community Center for distribution. 

Please drop your donations into the Food Box Donation Can on the church patio on Sunday mornings.

Each month there is an focus on certain foods.  The emphasis this month:


Peanut Butter, Canned Meat, Powdered Milk

Fruit Cups, 
Tuna/Chicken Packages (with flip-tops), canned sausage, Cup-o-Noodles, granola bars, peanut butter & cracker packets, small boxes of raisins, juice boxes, bottle water, small packages of cookies or chips, plastic forks/spoons/knives, napkins

If you have any questions, please contact Sherry Hanberg in the church office (714-776-5710.)


Homeless and Local Outreach need your help with food boxes.  Supplies are very low.  If you are interested in packing your own box/bag, pick up a grocery list and box/bag at church.  For your convenience the lists are printed below for a Family Food Box, Senior Food Box, and Homeless Individual Food Box; or, click on the link at the bottom of this page for a printable copy of the list.

Thank you for your help and support!
