Successful Drive Stocks FISH Shelves for the Summer

During the summer months, the pantry shelves at FISH tend to be bare. Children and teens who receive one or two meals at school each day are now home from school, placing additional pressures on already-stretched food budgets.
Bruton once again answered the call and had a summer food drive for non-perishable food supplies to help fill the FISH cupboards for the summer. Foods collected were oatmeal, cereals, canned fruits, soups, vegetables, canned and dried beans, rice, dried pasta, canned pasta sauce, powdered milk, boxed macaroni and cheese, canned meats, chicken and fish, Saltine crackers, peanut butter, jelly, fruit juices, coffee, tea and cocoa.
Over 100 grocery bags were dropped off by generous parishioners to the Bruton Parish Lewis Hall lobby. Volunteers of all ages came by to deliver them to FISH and stayed to help stock their pantry shelves. If you'd like to donate to FISH, please visit
