Community Food Share
As a faith community, we are called to minister to injustice. One of the continuing injustices in our society is homelessness. While some are called to address the roots of this injustice, others are moved to alleviate the immediate needs that accompany homelessness. The Garden Church has been preparing food for the Life Center homeless shelter at 63rd and Market Streets in Philadelphia for several years. The first Sunday of every even numbered month, a group of about six to ten youth and adults meet at church to prepare dinner to take and serve to about 120 guests who are homeless or having trouble meeting all their financial responsibilities. A team of about 12 people prepares parts of the meal at their homes and delivers it to church on the day of the serving.
Donations are gratefully accepted to any of these fine ministries of caring.
