Food Pantry: Every 3rd Saturday of the Month at 10 AM
Our very modest first distribution served 18 families. To date, we have given food to 170 different families from Yuba and Butte counties. The Óðinshof Food Pantry gives us the opportunity to show the locals who we really are.
In 2018, we were asked by the Yuba-Sutter Food Bank (YSFB) for our help as they needed a site from which to distribute food to the locals in need. A fire had burned down the local grocery store and this left many families in a tough spot. All of the churches in Brownsville were contacted, but we were the only ones who said, “Yes.” We provide food to all who are hungry and we LOVE our Brownsville community!
Currently, many white folk in South Africa are unemployed and have fallen into extreme poverty due to preferential treatment for others in this area of the world. Our members around the world contribute to our "South Africa Fund" to help lighten the severity of this devastating situation.
When members come into financial hardship, the Folk rally together to assist them. By our church community contributing to the "Folk Services Fund" throughout the year, one-time modest monetary grants are available. We then are able to help those struggling to meet basic needs such as food, shelter, transportation, or a medical bill when such a need arises.
Adopt A Highway
Each month, Óðinshof District volunteers participate in an Adopt-a -Highway cleanup. We are responsible for cleaning up a stretch of highway in Northern California.
