.Around 8:00 AM each Sunday, the Calvary Baptist Church Ministry hosts an event called “Fill the Pots” where members of the congregation and community bring home cooked food to Pioneer Park (300 S 300 W, Salt Lake City) to distribute to the homeless.
Anything from breakfast foods like oatmeal, eggs, sausage and potatoes, to pastries, soups, and more are wonderful, and participants in the event are encouraged to bring a pot that will feed about fifty people. (Paper goods and utensils are provided, but donations are also accepted and encouraged.)
The ministry also collects clothing, toiletries, and various items that they take back to a storage facility to sort and distribute in packages to the homeless population. (They need large and extra-large clothing sizes specifically.)
I’m planning to go from 8 – 9:30 AM next Sunday, January 23rd, and would love for any and all of you to join me. Please let me know if you would like to participate so I can give the event organizer a heads up. (If you have a food handler’s permit, please have it on hand when you come.)
They are there every Sunday, so if the 23rd doesn’t work with your schedule and you’d like to help, please feel free to stop by on another day.
It would be lots of fun to do this together… hope to see you next Sunday!
