Fatboyheaven goes BIG for The Pantry at Rock Creek Church

This morning the family and I got up early and headed down to Rock Creek Church to cook Fat Boy Stew for 115 people at their Food Pantry for the 2nd Saturday meal. Just take the recipe for Fatboy stew and multiply it by 10 and you have the idea. It was great to give back and help with what has become a family project at the Pantry, and we had a lot of fun catching up with a great group of volunteers.  

If you would like to help this holiday season, the Pantry at Rock Creek Church provides food for more than 100 families every week through their partnership with The Oregon Food Bank.  Donations to The Oregon Food Bank can be designated to benefit The Pantry, as can gifts to Rock Creek Church at 4470 NW 185th Ave., Portland, OR 97229.
