"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in" (Matthew 25 v 35)
Harvest time will soon be upon us and a number of you have been asking for our Harvest List to help the congregation bring specific items of food that we require to help feed our 100 visitors each day now for seven days a week.
We are very grateful for all the harvest gifts that we receive from churches and schools not just from Glasgow but further afield and also for those who donate food on a regular basis. Your contribution has meant that we are still able to provide free breakfast and lunches to our Service Users. Your partnership with us is in helping feed homeless men and woman is very much valued and appreciated.
We require around 100 harvests to enable us to provide all these meals over a 12 month period. The number of hours to sort out all that we receive into the correct product and date is huge. To help us with this task, we are asking if you will please keep to the list that has been prepared by the kitchen staff. This will reduce time and space requirements.
We will be able to accept harvest donations any day of the week during our opening times 8am till 3pm, including Saturdays and Sundays. If you are in a position to give us a time, we can arrange help at the LHMend.
You will see from the list that we have added some new items which are now being used on a regular basis.
We also acknowledge that many congregations prefer to give us a financial donation and this will also be very much welcomed. Financial donations help us with out meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, eggs, milk and other items we need throughout the year.
Many thanks once again for your continuing support and please help us in whatever way you can. Your kindness and generosity at this special time really helps us to make the difference.
