ANNOUNCEMENT: Bethel will only hold a 10:30 AM worship service at Bethel Fergus Falls today. All Sunday School, confirmation, ministry activities and other worship services are CANCELLED at BOTH CAMPUSES.

USDA Fresh Box Program

Two USDA Fresh Box deliveries will be arriving in Fergus Falls before the end of October. These deliveries include fresh fruit, vegetables, dairy products, and pre-cooked meats. The boxes are free and open to anyone. It is anticipated that at least 1,250 boxes will be arriving in each delivery.

First delivery:
October 22, 2020 at 4:00 PM (until boxes are gone)
Location: K-Mart parking lot
(Delivery was organized by the Fergus Falls Food Shelf)

Second delivery:
October 31, 2020 at 9:30 AM (until boxes are gone)
Location: Bethel Lutheran Church, Fergus Falls parking lot
(Delivery was organized by the Fergus Falls Ministerial Association)

The aim of the program is to connect surplus food with food banks and nonprofits that serve people in need, during this difficult time, while utilizing fresh and perishable food that would otherwise go to waste. This program has provided employment by awarding contracts to small and mid-size distributors to bring back furloughed workers to pack the boxes.

Please contact Fergus Falls Food Shelf and Bethel Lutheran Church for more information about each of the deliveries.

If you're able to help unload and distribute food, please contact Pastor Rich Iverson at Bethel Fergus Falls and let him know what hours you are able to help. If you have a group that could help (neighbors, friends, co-workers, youth group), this would be a rewarding opportunity.
