Food Security Team
Through dedicated service and partnership, the UUCY Food Security Team helps to lessen the plight of food insecurity in our local community.
Our UUCY Food Security Team:
Our Daily Bread (ODB)
Approximately 15 years ago a member of UUCY, Jeff Lears, contacted the manager of Our Daily Bread, our local soup kitchen. Member Jo Roussey found the original recipe and we started our ODB mission. ODB is UUCY's longest running Social Justice commitment. Today, we continue in that commitment by making and serving casseroles six times a year.

Food Pantry Garden and Family Garden Plots
The Food Pantry Garden provides fresh organic vegetables for those who have limited access to fresh produce. A dedicated group of volunteers gardens the plot, and the food from that plot is donated to the St. Paul's Food Pantry.
To find out how you can help in the UUCY Food Pantry Garden, contact Karen Wishart at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Family Gardens give members of the local community the opportunity to grow their own food, taking control of what they eat and where it comes from. People sign up for the season.
To get a Family Garden plot, for a $10 commitment and with the expectation that gardeners do all planting, watering, weeding, and harvesting on their plot in return for keeping everything they grow, contact Jon Paulos at email@example.com. Jon will set you up with a garden plot if plots are available and provide tips on how best to maintain it.
