Food Share & Farm

FOOD SHARE

Our Food Share ministry gathers donations from CTK, local businesses and the CTK Farm and delivers them to the areas of greatest local need. It’s all about pulling our resources together and creating community partnerships to help people in need throughout our neighborhoods, communities, and county.

We  have launched a new Food Share Prep Team! They are meeting 1-2 times a month to wash, chop and bag vegetables for freezing and/or distribution. This helps local groups incorporate more healthy foods into their programs' meals. To sign up, email foodshare@ctk.church.

We also partner with the Foothills Food Bank in Kendall who serves 150-200 families a week. We have a team gathering to sort and pack items on Mondays and a team to take the donations up the mountain on Tuesdays. Also, during the harvest season out at the CTK Farm we get to distribute anywhere from 700–3,000 pounds of produce per week.

Here’s what you can do to help right now:

Also, if you are a farmer or own a local food business and would like to partner with us, we would love to get your donations to those who need it most. Or if you’d like more information or have questions, contact Faith
at ext 220 or Faithw@ctk.church.

Item of the Month

FARM

At the CTK Farm, a team of faithful volunteers manages several acres of donated farmland and greenhouses to provide fresh produce for many local partnerships who serve needy people in Whatcom County. The CTK Farm is located at the corner of Hemmi and Hannegan (6069 Hannegan Road). Look for the large greenhouse or brightly painted shipping container with our mural on it.

The Farm is in full swing and all the fields are full of plants and people! We have weekly workdays on Monday and Friday Mornings from 9-12! We would love to have you join us! If you would like to get more information about the farm or join the weekly email list, email John Williams.

During the summer harvest season, we will be hosting small groups for Pick-n-Picnic. We are currently looking for farm hosts to help direct the small groups’ work time. If you are interested in becoming a host please email faithw@ctk.church.

Here’s what you can do to help right now:

  • Bring your small group out for Pick and Picnic (reserve your date here)

  • Host a small group or a community partner as they visit for a field trip. Learn more here.

  • Consider volunteering at the farm

  • Check the Food Share and Farm wall in the CTK commons for current workdays at the farm

  • Pray for some dry weather and an amazing harvest season
