A member of Lakewood, Colorado's, Green Mountain UMC, Bobbi Bunger, died on July 5, 2017. Her sister and father, Donna and Don, remain faithful members of the congregation and have recently, with the help of some other members and friends, created a Blessing Box to provide food for folks in need. Instructions are written on the box in both English and Spanish, as well as contact info for Lakewood’s Action Center, a terrific non-profit agency that, among other things, distributes food to the needy.
The weekend before Bobbi died, Donna and her family had a lengthy conversation about a little food pantry like the little libraries. After her death, they found a drawing of the box in one of her sketch books with the words, “Feed the Body, Feed the Soul.”
