Outreach to the Hungry

Community Meals

The first Thursday of each month members of our church provide and serve food for the Community Meals program at Luke House. The Community Meals program serves free lunch and dinner to those in need in the Madison area. To find out how you can help, contact the church office at 608-233-9751.

CROP Hunger Walk

CROP walks help to support the overall ministry of Church World Service, especially the grassroots, hunger-fighting development efforts of partner agencies in more than 80 countries by providing tools that empower people to meet their own needs. Each local CROP WALK can choose to return up to 25 percent of the funds it raises to local hunger-fighting programs. Become involved by helping to plan the walk, volunteering to serve at the walk, joining the First Congregational walking team, or donating to a team member. For more information, contact Jeff Rabe.

Dane County Farmer's Market Food Collections

When the Saturday market on the Square is in session, members of First Congregational periodically help the Community Action Coalition glean produce from farmers and vendors to give to Dane County food pantries. To sign-up, call Bob Metz at 608-238-6436.

Food Pantry Donations

Non-perishable food items can be dropped off in the collection basket found in the narthex. Donations are currently taken to the Grace Episcopal Church food pantry on the Capitol Square.

Community Thanksgiving Dinner

COVID-19 update: For the safety of our guests and volunteers, FCUCC has chosen not to serve our annual Thanksgiving Meal this year. In lieu of the meal, FCUCC is financially supporting the Goodman Community Center and The River Food Pantry. Please contact one of these organizations for your Thanksgiving meal needs.

Since 1993, the church has hosted a free Thanksgiving meal for the community. Volunteers prepare, cook, and serve meals to several hundred people. All are welcome to share fellowship and a traditional holiday meal. There are volunteer opportunities for all ages.
