Throughout the year, UUCT supports Manna on Meridian, a food ministry housed at Faith Presbyterian Church. UUCT is a co-sponsor along with Faith Presbytarian, St. Stephen Lutheran Church, St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, and Grace Lutheran Church members. Members of these churches provide food donations to help fill the pantry.

UUCT food Contributions to Manna on Meridian can be deposited in the bright blue box in the room at the rear of the Sanctuary or the plastic box with greeen lid on the UUCT veranda. Monetary donations can be sent to UUCT and identified for Manna.
