Chili Guys – St. Ben’s
The Chili Guys have been meeting Tuesday mornings, 7:00-8:00 a.m. for over 15 years. The group organized as a way to use excess venison from their deer hunting adventures to provide gallons of chili for St. Ben’s daily meal program.  Interested?  Fellowship and share some of your time (an hour twice a month), talent (venison from your hunting adventures), or treasure (as we are self funded: contribute to Crossroads with “Chili Fund” in the memo) would be greatly appreciated!

Mission Garden – 2023
Contact Erin Goldschmidt if you’re interested in stepping up.
Produce is donated to Family Sharing as well as the Saukville Food Pantry. Our focus on vegetables produces heavily, and is easily prepared by families (beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, yellow squash and zucchini). The raised garden beds reduce the need for weeding and watering.
