Trinity Interfaith Food Pantry
Trinity Interfaith Food Pantry (TIFP) was open nine days in October, 2020 and served 262 households. So far (during these first nine months in 2020), the food pantry has been open 84 days and has served 2,380 households.
The total expense in October for food purchased locally and through Harvesters was $ 1,460.70 and the total retail equivalent value of all food provided this month was $ 5,502.00. Each grocery bag of food has a retail value of $ 21.00.
Our patrons receive one bag of pre-bagged food along with a bag of cold food. TIFP provides food to any person requesting food with no requirements. About 50 per cent of our patrons walk or ride their bikes to the food pantry and the remainder drive cars.
TIFP continues to give all food to our patrons outside the Matthews Center by Trinity Church and volunteers use face masks and equipment sanitizing practices.
Volunteers with the Mobile Food Distribution (through Harvesters) served households in 125 cars on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at First Baptist Church. TIFP Volunteers and friends served along with other volunteers from Catholic Charities of NE Kansas, First Baptist Church, Salvation Army, and the Boy Scouts.
The food pantry continues to be grateful to members of all partner churches for the continuing and generous support with money, service, and prayer to our ministry of giving food to people in need.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the kitchen remains closed. Some volunteers will be handing out bag lunches on our usual day. Since we cannot prepare and serve meals, LINK would appreciate monetary donations to help with the cost of the lunches. If you wish to contribute, please send a check made out to L.I.N.K., and mail it to:
First Christian Church,
1000 Kentucky St.
Lawrence, KS 66044
Please note Trinity Episcopal Church on the memo line. Your gift is another way to reach out to those in need during this time. Thank you!

Greetings LIRIM supporters and those who have supported our DACA scholars program in the past.
BackSnack continues to find ways to serve
While the Back Snack program has changed its distribution, Trinity’s program continues to find ways of serving hungry kids in Lawrence. When Back Snack was not reaching the neediest kids by offering the food packets at Trinity, Tod Sutton and Greg Hazen took quick action to put out a notice to our 12 school contacts to find how our church could best serve the students. A pilot program was conducted to deliver 60 food packs to hungry Woodlawn students the second week of April at the school site. .
The program continues to develop and reach out to the community while staying within the COVID-19 guidelines. Back Snack plans to deliver food packets to Hillcrest and Kennedy students at their individual schools during the week of April 19. We will be evaluating the program each week moving forward. Any plan will put the health and safety of our volunteers, the children and their families first.
The food distributed is provided by Harvesters. At this time, no fruit is being distributed and as a result, the BackSnack program has no expenses. While we are not in need of contributions, your prayers are very much appreciated.
