One of our favorite ways to serve our community is to work with our local Lutheran Food pantries and ministries to give families in need a Thanksgiving meal. Each basket includes a full turkey meal for 6 people.
This year, we have a new opportunity for making and distributing baskets. We've formed a partnership with Ebenezer Stone Ministry and their director Mike Haas. Ebenezer Stone Ministry sources food through Feeding America and other major food vendors. Food is shipped to the Ebenezer Stone warehouse and then distributed to local food pantries in the city of Milwaukee. These partnerships and resources allow us the opportunity to source food at a much lower cost. For this reason, all boxing, packing and delivery will take place in ONE day, Saturday, November 19 at the Ebenezer Stone warehouse in Milwaukee. The whole family is invited to Ebenezer Stone to pack meals and then deliver to our same locations as last year. Come for just packing, delivering or both! Lunch will be provided for those packing meals. The building does have an enclosed parking lot. We will also have an optional bus service to and from Brookfield Lutheran Church available for those not wishing to drive. As an added bonus you will get to see and hear about the ministry at Ebenezer Stone and how they are getting food into the hands of those in need, all done for Jesus!
