Weekend Food Bags
Our church family, in partnership with Jupiter First Church, provide Weekend Food Bags to over 230 children at Jupiter Elementary, Jerry Thomas Elementary, Limestone Elementary, and Jupiter Farms Elementary. 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, the Jupiter First Church family, and Jupiter community members.
C.R.O.S. (Christian’s Reaching Out to Society) is our United Methodist Church Urban Ministry in Palm Beach County. C.R.O.S. provides food, summer camp for children, social services, mentoring, gleaning, and coordinates hurricane recovery for areas along the east coast.

First UMC Jupiter serves as one of C.R.O.S.’s seven 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.
