Pão de Vida


A team at IECA have started a food bank in order to support members of our local community who find themselves in challenging circumstances. Covid 19 has caused great financial difficulties as unemployment rises and work opportunities decrease. The food bank is going to assist those in dire need temporarily, until they are able to get back on their feet.

The Team

Our team serves as a link between the IECA church members and those in need. The team will identify and assess families requiring assistance. Team members will then arrange various projects and fundraisers to collect food for the food bank on an ongoing basis. The food will be packaged and distributed as the need arises. We hope that you, our IECA church members, will partner with us and alleviate the distress families are experiencing. Please help us restore a sense of saftey and dignity to the families in desperate situations. Feel free to speak to any member of our team if you are able and willing to assist in any way. Please watch out for our annoucements at church and on our church Facebook page. Thank you. We look foward to partnering with you.
