Spread the Bread

A weekly ministry dedicated to feeding our local friends who are homeless.  This ministry began as a Sunday Sandwich Ministry in 2009 and has grown to be a hot meal served on Sunday with a bag lunch for the next day. Teams of volunteers pray, prepare, deliver and serve the weekly meal.

ACTS Food Pantry

A collection point for canned and boxed food that is brought to the ACTS Food Pantry.  ACTS is a local social service organization and the acronym stands for Action in the Community Through Service. ACTS food pantry gives away over 50,000 pounds of food each month to those in need in our community. Healthier foods, such as no salt added vegetables and protein enriched pastas, are needed.  In addition, there is a need for other items such as cooking oil, paper towels, dish detergent, laundry detergent, napkins, toilet paper, full size shampoo, and toothpaste as well as other toiletries.

Thank you for your generous support of the Souper Bowl of Caring food drive to support the homeless and hungry of Prince William County, VA! 

FUPCDC collected a total of 3,266 lbs. of food for the ACTS Food Panty! 

The 11:00 AM "Golden Lions" team alone collected more than last year's total weight of 982.5 lbs. with a whopping 1,337 lbs. of food collected!  The 8:30 AM "ACTors" team collected an amazing 1,929 lbs. of food which is more than double the amount the entire church collected in 2017 for the Souper Bowl of Caring.  Wow!   

Totals:
Souper Bowl of Caring 2017: 899.3 lbs.
Souper Bowl of Caring 2018: 982.5 lbs.
Souper Bowl of Caring 2019: 3,266 lbs.

Remember the real winners are the homeless and hungry of Prince William County!  Congrats to both teams for their amazing collection totals! 

Next year, for the Souper Bowl of Caring 2020, we have been unofficially challenged by Dumfries United Methodist Church.  #FightHunger #TeamFUPCDC
