Feed Your Neighbor
Fourth Saturday of Each Month
As part of an ongoing effort to build bridges within our community, volunteers from FUMC Allen serve with the Islamic Association of Allen’s Feed Your Neighbor project every fourth Saturday of the month .
Together we prepare approximately 500 meals for the homeless. We meet at 9:30am at the IAA (909 Allen Central Drive, Allen) to pack individual lunches. Each meal includes a turkey sandwich, water, fruit, and snack items.
These sack meals are distributed through the Mobile Soup kitchen at Beacon of Light, which is Masjid Al Islam’s Community Service Center.
This project typically takes only an hour, and anyone who can make a sandwich is welcome, roughly age five and up. If you come to work, wear ball cap or plan to pull your hair back so it doesn’t hang in your face. You’ll also want to wear something you don’t mind getting bleach spots on.
Please invite friends who may also be interested in serving. For more details, contact Rev. Jessica Wright.
