Hunger Initiative Field Trips

This summer we are exploring how we as a church can do more to feed people who are hungry.  Asking questions like: how we can expand our table?

  • Who is hungry near us?
  • What organizations are doing good work with food?
  • And who should we talk to and learn from?

As Central explores ideas on ways to build upon our strengths and doing more to provide food to those who are hungry, we will be offering field trips to volunteer at and learn from other organizations doing important work.   Our first field trip will be at on Monday, June 25 at Gethsemane Lutheran Church (4656 Colfax Ave, Minneapolis)   Gethsemane does amazing work on a weekly basis receiving food from large grocery stores and distributing it to local residents.  Volunteers will meet at Central at 9:00 am to drive over together, arrive at Gethsemane around 9:30 and volunteer until noon.  Space is very limited.  If you would like to participate, please contact Sarah Hoffman at intern@cpcstpaul.org.

Our next field trip will be at Higher Ground (also known as Dorothy Day) on Saturday, July 14.  Details will be announced closer to this date.
