Trinity "Fund" Run and Walk

On Sunday, April 29, the Trinity Presbyterian Church Winger Food Pantry will host its inaugural "fund" run and walk to raise money for the pantry, with the run beginning at 8:30 a.m. in front of Trinity Presbyterian Church in U City.  Over the last 5 years, our average expenses have been more than $25,000 which has helped us provide food for over 900 metro STL families a year. The pantry's only source of funding is through donations. As you can imagine, we need all of the help we can get.

You don't need to run or walk to contribute. There is a donation only section.

Or, if you’d like to volunteer during race day, please see the list of volunteer opportunities below and sign up using the link below.
    Volunteers needed on race day:
a.             4-5 for registration – working on laptops to sign runners up at the site. 
b.             10-12 out on the course to make sure folks go the right way.
c.              4-5 at finish line, collecting stubs from race bibs, providing water, etc
d.             2-3 at an aid station around the middle of the course,
e.             1-2 holding water out for runners to grab.
f.               4-5 handling race management.  Crowds, food, etc
g.             2-3 managing food and drink in the church for runners getting post food (bananas, bars, water and powerade or the like)  We will try to get discounted or donated - so if you know someone....

Tip: Remove the tops from your root vegetables

Woo woo. Take it off baby! When you receive root veggies with the greens attached, it's important to remove the tops from the roots. The greens are edible if they're in good shape--yes, even radish greens--and don't think that just because they are wilted that they are not good. They are just thirsty! Why?...Read more


To Betty and me, Fair Shares means security and fairness. It is great to know that every week we will be able to move product and receive a fair price for it. I am proud to be part of the Fair Shares team.
