From now until Christmas, local volunteers are working in cooperation with Safeway’s nationwide Feed the Need program to provide food for the Burney Food Coop.
For $10, Safeway shoppers can purchase a pre-filled bag of groceries that will be donated to the Burney Food Coop. Just take one of the slips from the in-store displays to be scanned at the register.
The Burney Food Co-op is a Christian non-profit organization formed by local churches, members of the business community, and volunteers to promote food security, dignity, and civic responsibility in Burney and the Intermountain area.
The Burney Food Coop is located at 36910 Main Street in Burney. It is designed to help provide food and fellowship for those in need in an uplifting setting. People of all races, religions, and cultural backgrounds are welcome. Co-op members meet regularly each month for a meal, fellowship, and food distribution. There is a devotional message at every meeting and members are encouraged to participate in their own provision, help one another, and serve the larger community.
In addition to the current food drive, community members can also donate food or money directly to the Co-op or volunteer to help in various ways. All gifts are tax deductible.
If you would like to learn more or get involved, please call 530-335- 5925 or 530-335-5244. Or you can Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pamphlets explaining the mission and organization of the Burney Food Co-op are available at the Feed the Need display in the Safeway store.
