California-Nevada churches come together to support outh Sacramento food closet


United Methodist churches in the south Sacramento region are among 12 interfaith congregations that partner with the South Sacramento Interfaith Partnership (SSIP) Food Closet.  Sacramento Japanese UMC, Centennial UMC, Florin UMC, Wesley UMC and Hope UMC each support SSIP with volunteers, financial and in-kind donations.

The South Sacramento Interfaith Partnership (SSIP) Food Closet was established in 1969 and serves people in the community that are facing food insecurities. SSIP feeds an average of 9,000 people a month with the help of Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services, corporate and grocery store partners in addition to the 12 interfaith partners.

The primary mission of the SSIP Food Closet is to maintain and operate an emergency food distribution program to help alleviate food insecurity for Sacramento area residents. Partner faith-based organizations, with assistance from local businesses and other community members, provide the support and resources for the Food Closet’s mission.

United Methodists understand the importance of connection!  Let us know what are churches in your circuit and district doing to support the community together? Send your story to selbye@calnevumc.org.
