…that grocery bags are needed? Clean paper grocery bags with handles are greatly appreciated at the Berkeley Food Pantry (they help get the nine complete meals worth of food home to those who need emergency groceries, including our donations of smooth peanut butter and breakfast cereal). Heavy plastic grocery bags are appreciated at the Trinity Center of Walnut Creek. Please drop off your bags at the cereal and peanut butter table in the Hall of Entrance on Sunday mornings. Thank you!

You’re invited to take the books we aren’t keeping. Look for this Book Cart on Sunday mornings in the Hall of Entrance.
