Joy MCC Food Pantry Liaison needed!

Needed: person/s to liaison with Joy Metropolitan Community Church (Joy MCC) Food Pantry. This group/project is one of 1U’s Share the Plate recipients. The Food Pantry serves hundreds of families per month with food needs. Learn more at 1U has provided funds through Share the Plate, and food through special and ongoing collections. Having a regular liaison with Joy MCC Food Pantry staff would solidify our relationship and build opportunities to serve the community.


  • Be in contact with Joy MCC Food Pantry personnel to determine best ways 1U can support their
    efforts. This could range from several times a year (Share the Plate and occasional food drives)
    to more frequent interactions. Exploring options for in person volunteer opportunities might be
  • Publicize Food Pantry needs to 1U through submissions to Weekly Update and Facebook, as appropriate. 1U Leadership Development Committee can assist with logistics on publicity
    options and details.
  • Monitor donation area in Gore Hall as items are brought in by congregants
  • Work with Amy Fairweather, 1U church administrator, to arrange for donations to be picked up by Joy MCC personnel.

Duration: start anytime, and serve at least through June 2023; could be longer if desired.
