Sharing Bread Soup Kitchen
Brainerd, MN 56401
Details: We exist to demonstrate the love of Christ by providing meals to the hungry. Through this act of love we hope to provide spiritual and emotional as well as physical sustenance. Our ultimate aim is to facilitate within our guests a genuine encounter with Christ. Sharing Bread Soup Kitchen began in 1987 at St. Francis Church in Brainerd, MN. It soon evolved into a ministry of the wider church community of the Brainerd Lakes Area and moved to a new location in downtown Brainerd. In 1997 the Soup Kitchen lost its downtown home and was in danger of closing its doors. The congregation of Communitas after reading about the Soup Kitchen’s need for a new home, opened the doors of its Fellowship Hall. The Soup Kitchen has continued to operate from its present home since then.
Trinity Food Shelf
Brainerd, MN 56401
Details: Many years ago Trinity established a food shelf for people that are need of food in an emergency situation. People come to the church office seeking our help. These people often times have no other food in the house. Can you imagine being in a situation where you would have to respond to "WHAT'S FOR SUPPER? with, we have nothing to eat. Our food shelf is supported by food and monetary donations from church members. We proclaim the first Sunday of the month as Food Shelf Sunday but it is O.K. to bring food any time. A shopping cart (near the office entrance) is provided for you to place your items in. When someone seeks food we provide them with a grocery bag filled with items for one day's meals (breakfast, lunch and supper).
