Communion Offering: Mercer Street Friends Food Bank


20121107-202343.jpgThis Sunday, August 2, our Communion Offering will support the Mercer Street Friends Food Bank.   It has been a leader in our community ‘s response to hunger in Mercer County since 1987.

The Food Bank originated with a simple aim: to link donated food to people in need. Today they are the largest source of government and privately donated food in Mercer County. 2.5 million pounds of food and groceries are distributed to 60 charitable food providers, such as food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters each year.

Your support enables Mercer Street Friends to provide efficient and effective food collection and distribution so that people in need can access free groceries and wholesome meals from a charitable food provider in their neighborhood.
Thank you for your generosity.
