Outreach Program Brings Food Packers

to St. Mark's

Thousands of meals packaged in Fellowship Hall

 Photo Gallery


Food packaging eventSaturday, April 29 saw Fellowship Hall converted into a giant food packaging facility. It was an amazing sight.

Close to 100 folks from St. Mark's and other churches in the region gathered to help the poor and hungry of the area. Five lines were organized with 10-12 people performing various functions in assembly line fashion. Measuring noodles and soy meal; filling bags with sauce, checking the weight and sealing the bags all occurred with military precision. The bags were then boxed and prepared for distribution.

Two shifts worked about 2 1/2 hours to package and box the meals. Support personnel worked countless hours before, during and after the event to prepare the materials, cook food for the workers and to pack the boxes out of the Church.

It was a monumental effort which packaged about 20,000 meals.

Many thanks also to all the volunteers who helped with set up, packaging, refreshments and cleaning up this event. Together with community members we were able to address the food insecurity that exists in our area.
