Hunger and Justice

Over the past few years, we have raised awareness and provided opportunities for Community and Zion members to respond to local and global needs for “daily bread.”

  • We have raised money to send ELCA “Good Gifts;” farm animals, community gardens, fish ponds, and more overseas.
  •  One year our “Walk for Water,” to the St. Louis River and back, raised money for 3 village wells.
  •  Regularly, we have arranged meal serving at the Union Gospel Mission, encouraged bell ringing and support for the Salvation Army, and held meetings to discuss Amnesty International, the synod Immersion Trip to El Paso and Juarez, a medical mission in Haiti, etc.
  •  The picture above recalls one of our several evenings at Fond Du Lac Tribal and Community College where members of the church prepared soup or chili and sides, and served a meal for students in their dormitory. 
  • Our committee is eager to expand our membership and involvement.  We are grateful for the recent involvement and contributions of Pastor CJ Boettcher and family and Zion’s Youth and Family minister, Katie Anderson

Free Little Food Pantry

Thank you to the Hunger and Justice Committee and Tony A. for the new pantry on our property.  As members of the Zion community, we will be looking for help keeping the pantry stocked and maintained.  You can participate by bringing non-perishable food to the church and placing in the cart in the Narthex, filling the pantry yourself or by volunteering to be a pantry monitor.  Please contact the office with any questions!

Fon Du Lac Tribal and Community College

During the school year, the Hunger and Justice committee serves meals to our neighbors at the Fon du lLac Tribal and Community College.  If you are interested in  providing a meal or a similar outreach, please reach out to the Hunger and Justice Committee via the church office.
