The Feeding Program is an outreach project that we share with St. Matthias Episcopal church. Each church covers six months out of the year. One Saturday a month we gather to pack sack lunches for approximately 140 homeless people who are housed in shelters in Richmond. Lunches consist of a meat and cheese sandwich, condiment packets, a piece of fruit, a single serving bag of chips, and cookies. These lunches are prepared at church by volunteers and are then delivered, by car, to the designated shelters by 2 or 3 volunteers. This is a rewarding and meaningful experience for all ages and only takes an hour (or two, if you help deliver the lunches).
Here are the dates for the Feeding Programs for 2013:
All dates are on Saturday. We meet in Denny Hall at 9:00 AM sharp to pack between 100-140 lunches and then deliver them to the homeless shelters at 10:00 AM. Those interested can sign up in Denny Hall a few weeks prior to each date. Thank you so much for your continued support of this important Outreach ministry!
