Churches Active in Northside

CAIN (Churches Active in Northside) is a not-for-profit cooperative outreach ministry of neighborhood churches that strives to provide “Help for Today – Hope for Tomorrow”. 

CAIN's main function is the Rainbow Choice Food Pantry, that serves the Northside community. They also are continuing to build their community garden and their "Another for a Neighbor" program booth at the Northside Farmer's Market.

"Another for a Neighbor" program in the Northside Farmer's Market strives to provide awareness to the community about CAIN, their programs, and allow for healthier food and produce donations from the vendors and Market customers. 

For this outdoor season, they are committed to both the booth and their Public Ally Nash Traylor working on having a food-related kids and/or educational activity each week. This will be every Wednesday at 4pm-7:30pm from late May until the end of September. The location in Northside is pending. 

CAIN is looking for people and ideas on how best to promote the "Another for a Neighbor" program and get pantry guests to come to the Northside Farmer's Market. This could be any thing from making balloon animals to painting art with kids. If you might be interested or have ideas please email Nash, CAIN's Gardener/Healthy Eating Coordinator.
