Episcopal Charities is responding to the needs of our Diocesan outreach partners who are trying to feed the growing numbers of hungry men, women and children. "Feeding Our People" offers congregations a variety of ways to get involved and help end hunger in local communities, including coordinating monthly food drives. Please click here to download the Food Drive Canned & Non Perishable Goods List and the Program Partners in need.

We are also offering training to congregations wishing to begin a feeding ministry. Episcopal Charities will show you how to:

  • Become a Food Stamp application site
  • Distribute free lunches to children during the summer months
  • Join a 'gleaning' team:
    Members of your congregation, including youth, can help 'glean' extra produce at farms, with the crops gathered being distributed to the poor

Watch for a manual of 'best practices' for feeding programs that Episcopal Charities will offer to congregations in 2010!
