Friedens Empty Bowls

On October 9th, more than 1,000 handmade, one-of-a-kind bowls will be available for purchase at Friedens Empty Bowls – held in the Deer District Beer Garden from 12-3 pm. Guests can enjoy a beautiful piece of art which also serves as a reminder that someone’s bowl is always empty in our community.

Friedens Holiday P.E.A.C.E Drive

From October to December Friedens is busy planning food drives,  making Thanksgiving boxes, collecting toys, and planning holiday parties for families who could use extra cheer and resources during the holidays. You can help People Eat And Create Equity – right here in our community – with a generous donation of your funds, your food, and your time. 

Check out Friedens' holiday spirit from past years!

Ongoing Community Food Drives

Friedens Ministries has an ongoing food collection at several locations.  Food can be delivered to one of our food pantries during open hours.  If you are having trouble stopping by one of the pantries, consider using one of our drop-off locations!  Drop by any of these locations and leave food in the donation barrels. These donations are ongoing and collected on a monthly basis.
