Here's  a way for you to save time AND help feed the needy in the Northland. It's become a yearly tradition that the First United Methodist Church members and students from the College of St. Scholastica join forces and make lots and lots of pies to sell with the proceeds going to CHUM.  It happens this Wednesday, so set a reminder on your phone or put a postie note on your computer to stop by and pick a few up!


The fresh, delicious pies will be hand-crafted and available for sale at the First United Methodist "Coppertop" Church, 230 East Skyline Parkway in Duluth this Wednesday, October 7, from 1-5p.  Cost is the same as last year, $12.

This is a great way to "get ahead" with your Thanksgiving feast.  Buy pies and freeze them!

Throughout the year the CHUM Emergency Food Shelf is stocked with non-perishable food items donated by area congregations and other groups. The organization helps to provide meals to over 6,000 people a year.  That's 7% of Duluth!

Unsold pies will be distributed to Food Shelf guests for their Thanksgiving meal.

In related news, the Thanksgiving Day Buffet will be open to all at the DECC again this year.  Volunteer sign-up will begin soon.
