At FUMC, our church family works alongside our community to provide Weekend Food Bags to local elementary students who have been diagnosed as chronically hungry. Food is stored and packed on church property and then transported weekly to the local schools for distribution during the school year. It is an honor to serve our youngest community members and assist with eliminating food insecurity. This ministry is funded by the generous donations of our church family and Jupiter community members.

First UMC Jupiter serves as one of C.R.O.S.’s community food pantries providing food to low income persons in need of help. Food is collected and supported in our church food pantry and delivered to El Sol for distribution as needed.
Food can be placed in the red wagon in our Narthex/Lobby area on Sunday mornings or brought to the church office throughout the week.
