SHAREing Your SHARE - Food Program

The Israel Metropolitan CME Church’s “SHAREing YOUR SHARE - Food  Program,” which serves as one of the host sites for the SHARE Food Network, has been in operation since December 1990.  The SHARE (Self Help and Resource Exchange) food program is a community outreach program sponsored by the Associated Catholic Charities and the Knights of Malata.  The creative program combines community service and 40 to 45 dollars worth of food per month at a great price (currently $20 per order).

In response to the financial crisis that is creating a hardship for many in our communities, we seek to have community based groups join us in providing affordable food for their clients. 

What We Do

  • Provide volunteers for oversight of the program
  • Provide for transportation of food from the warehouse to the church
  • Provide space at church for food distribution to participants
  • Provide an opportunity for students and/or offenders to meet their community service requirements
