Join us again this year for a day of interfaith service! Pack nutritious meals for the Merrimack Valley Food Bank at a time of year when supplies are low. Last year we packed 12,300+ nutritious meals for our food-insecure neighbors in the Merrimack Valley! Come together with our interfaith coalition of congregations and community organizations from around the Merrimack Valley to raise money and pack meals on February 11th. Sign up to participate here: https://goo.gl/c85ZbN Through a collaboration with Outreach, Inc., we plan to raise $3,750 to package 15,000 meals for local food banks. All meals will be packaged on Thursday, February 11, 2016 from noon to 3:00 p.m. 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.
