Bethel Bees Food Ministry Program

Welcome to the Bethel Bees Food Ministry Program!

Our new food ministry wants to bring some sweetness into the lives of our neighbors and pollinate some good community spirit.  By using the image of a bee, we are showing our neighbors that we are active, persistent and helpful to our neighborhood.  We have a new mascot:  Bethel L. Bee!  By having a team name and mascot we are reimagining ourselves for our service/community in an accessible way.

Breakfast and Lunch Prep for Summer Youth Program:  Bethel Bees  have been asked to help prepare breakfasts and lunches for the kids enrolled in the Summer Youth Program.  Pease Come join the hive and  make a difference in our community!

If you are interested in helping with meals for the Summer Youth Program please send an email to the office or to
Partnership with Renaissance Commons:  This program strives to create an equitable dinner table through shared meals that alleviate social isolation, build community and strengthen under-served neighborhoods.

Meals are prepared in the kitchen at Bethel and then brought to Renaissance Commons where we partner in serving and visiting with residents.  Come and join us on the 4th Thursday of the month.  Renaissance Commons is located at Denver and Argyle.  Volunteers are always needed for cooking as well as serving on site.  Consider volunteering for this great project.  We are cooking the meals (for 60 people) in Bethel’s kitchen.   Come and join in!

Garden Project:  Getting the garden up and going is a big project where many hands are needed.  Are you a gardener who is interested  in growing food for our community?  This garden is meant to glean vegetables to all who are in the community and in need.  Interested in volunteering?  To sign up either email or call the office or 503.285.4919.
