Grace United Methodist Church in Pequot Lakes has challenged Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Pequot Lakes to a Food Shelf Challenge to raise food and finances to help support the Lakes Area Food Shelf in Pequot Lakes.

The challenge will start on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 17, and will run through the fifth Sunday in Lent, March 21.

Our Savior's is asking parishioners to bring the following items during each week:

  • Feb. 21: Peanut butter.
  • Feb. 28: Canned vegetables.
  • March 7: Canned fruit.
  • March 14: Tuna.
  • March 21: Jelly.

Cash is welcome every week as well because March is Food Shelf Month and all money raised will be matched.

At the end of the Food Shelf Challenge, each food item will be counted as $1 and that will be added to the money raised. The church that raises the greater amount will be invited to an ice cream social when it is warm enough to meet outside.
