LC Valley comes together to feed 5000

Churches from throughout the Lewis-Clark Valley are coming together this weekend to participate in the 2nd Annual Feed the 5,000 food drive. Members of 19 churches will gather from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday at Kiwanis Park on Snake River Avenue to help unload donations, and donors are encouraged to stick around for food and family fun.

Local professionals will also be on-hand to offer free services to the community, including medical screening, legal help, and haircuts. There will also be a book exchange and coupon exchange. Donations are not required to participate in these events.

From the Idaho Food Bank: The food collected will be distributed to The Idaho Foodbank, which provides food to several food pantries in Lewiston, and the Asotin County Food Bank, which directly serves Clarkston and Asotin.

The event is sponsored by local churches through Shalom Project, a network whose goal is to connect churches to love in action. The theme of this food drive comes from the story in the Bible where Jesus feeds a crowd of more than 5,000 with only five loaves of bread and two fish. Feed the 5,000 is one way churches can come together to demonstrate God’s love to the community.

  • All Saints Catholic Church

  • Clarkston Foursquare Church
  • Clarkston United Methodist Church
  • Crosspoint Alliance Church
