COVER

Yes, thank you, your generosity has made Project Feed 5000 a great success for our church, the Community Assistance Center (CAC), and especially the families that will use our food donations to help make ends meet over the next number of months.

In previous years we have filled boxes that would feed a family of four for three days.  This year, because the CAC has moved to a shopping model we collected separate items to facilitate easy stocking on the shelves of the CAC Market.  Out target was still to collect 5000 meals, just in a different manner.  As you will see below we collected items in 12 different groups looking for a grand total of 3450 items.  On Thursday, the CAC picked up 3526 food items from this church.  Not only that, but your cash donations also allowed us to send a check to the CAC for $300.  Just fantastic, all around!
