Hunger Initiative Field Trips

This summer we are exploring how we as a church can do more to feed people who are hungry.  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 conducting field trips to volunteer at and learn from other organizations doing important work.

We are looking for members of Central to assist us with this effort and volunteer on our behalf.  After you have volunteered, we will invite you to share with us what you observed and experienced and how you see us applying that knowledge at Central for future food ministries.

Upcoming Events include:

  • Saturday, July 14th – Higher Ground (formerly Dorothy Day at 438 Dorothy Day Place, St. Paul, MN 55102) for their lunch meal volunteer experience.  We will need 4 people to arrive early at Mary Hall at 10:30 am for meal
    preparation, and an additional 4-8 people to join them at 11:15 am for
    meal serving.  The meal serving will end at 1:00 pm.  There will also
    likely be a talk from a Higher Ground employee on their organization after
    the lunch meal volunteering.  Volunteers must be 18 years or older.

If interested in volunteering for either event, please email Sarah Hoffman
at to get signed up!
