Food insecurity is a social justice issue. Join us to raise money and pack meals on February 8th. One-hour shifts from 11am-4pm working side-by-side with our interfaith coalition of congregations and community organizations from around the Merrimack Valley. Through a collaboration with Outreach, Inc., we plan to raise $3,750 to package 15,000 meals for our neighbors in the Merrimack Valley. All meals will be packaged on Wednesday, February 8, 2017 from noon to 3:00 p.m., with shifts for setup and cleanup as well. This event is open to any individual, congregation, or community - religious or nonreligious - interested in participating. Meals are packed by assembly lines in one-hour shifts. Intentional opportunities to meet people of other faiths and traditions are part of this experience. There will be dialogue and reflection to deepen the meaning of the day.
