The Christians-in-Action Club dress up for Halloween to trick-or-treat for canned food

The Christians-in-Action Club, a service club from Calvin Christian High School, passed out flyers over the weekend before Halloween alerting neighbors that instead of asking for candy for Halloween, they wanted to collect food for Interfaith’s pantry. The group focused on collecting the most frequently requested items from our food pantry, including:

  • Hearty soup
  • Peanut butter
  • Mac & cheese
  • Canned fruit
  • Canned chili
  • Canned beef stew
  • Canned beans
  • Canned vegetables
  • Canned pasta meals

The Christians-in-Action Club consists of about 15 students, who for this project divided into three teams and visited about 40 homes during a two hour window on Halloween night.

Members of the Christians-in-Action Club drop off their donations to Interfaith

The students stopped by Interfaith’s Betty and Melvin Cohn Center headquarters in Escondido on Wednesday to drop off their donations – an incredible approximate 400 pounds of food!

Interfaith thanks the students of Calvin Christian High School for their creative approach to trick-or-treating and the Halloween season, and hopes the group continues to support their community with additional philanthropic endeavors!
