local food distribution
Community Food Pantry
Every Tuesday at Luchessi Community Center at 5 pm
Hillside Church partners with three other Petaluma Churches to provide food for hungry families every Tuesday night. On the fourth Tuesday of every month, Hillsiders gather at Lucchesi Park (behind the Community Center) to distribute bags of food to around 100 families.
We would love to have you join us in volunteering! Come at 5:00 pm for sorting and bagging. We usually finish up at around 6:15. You will be blessed! And while Hillside's week is the fourth, you are welcome to show up ANY Tuesday to help out.
Peanut Butter and Jam Sessions
2nd and 4th Thursdays - meet at Hillside at 1:30 pm
On two Thursday afternoons each month, a group of Hillsiders meets to prepare sandwiches and other food items at the church. They then take those gifts to the street to distribute them to anyone who has need. This group has a great presence among the perpetually shelterless in Petaluma. They would love to have YOU join them in loving and serving these precious friends!
Sunday Morning Coffee and Food Distribution
Every Sunday morning - meet at Hillside at 6 am
Every Sunday morning, a group meets at Hillside at 6 am to make coffee and prepare some light food to distribute under bridges and along railroad tracks. Coffee and food are just a means for building relationships along the way. Come join this great group of servants!
