NATIVITAS is a local soup kitchen located in downtown Brussels. The cold winter months are long and hard for the homeless and needy. With the many challenges facing our community now, more and more people are having a hard time feeding themselves and their families. We can make a difference!
Here is our plan of action:
The children at IPC are joining the adults to collect non-perishable food through December 10:
- Canned items: vegetables, soup, fruit, tuna, salmon, sardines, nuts
- Cartons of soup, milk, juice (must have a long conservation date)
- Pasta, rice, barley, potato flakes, couscous, lentils, dried beans
- Oil, coffee, sugar, cereal, cocoa, jam, Nutella, cookies, chocolate
Everything we collect will be distributed to the families who turn to Nativitas for help. They will take their packages home to prepare their own meals.
The adults at IPC will also have the opportunity to make a financial donation, either by using the mission envelopes on Sunday or by bank transfer today through 24 December. This money will be used to purchase much needed fresh food for Nativitas, which will be prepared on site for those who come to the center for hot meals.
