Food Pantry Collection
Christ Church collects food on the second Sunday of each month by the chapel and rear entrance to the church where there is a white wooden box in the coat room where you may leave items. The food collected goes to the Hudson Food Pantry which has been run by the Hudson Community Service Association since 1944. The Food Pantry is located at Rejoice Lutheran at 7855 Stow Road and is open for distribution the fourth Saturday of every month from 1 - 2:30pm for residents within the district that meet the poverty level, or are on the school lunch program or Ohio food assistance program. Member Jeanne McKinney is a regular volunteer there and can answer any questions you may have.
