MONTHLY MISSION FOCUS
Woodlawn- Faith Food Distribution
Join Woodlawn-Faith UMC at St. John's Baptist Church on Fordson Road to pack food boxes for folks in our community to collect.
Point of Contact:
Througout the month of March, we will be highlighting the Woodlawn-Faith Food Distribution ministry, which provides food to folks in our community.
Woodlawn-Faith buys canned goods and produce from the Capital Area Food Bank, which the Food Bank delivers to St. John’s Baptist Church on Fordson Road. Produce comes in bulk and has to be bagged for distribution. Another person collects bread and pastry products from Costco and local grocery stores to be added to the boxes. Cars line up around the parking lot on a first-come/first-serve basis. Food boxes (canned goods, bread, and pastries) and bags (produce) are loaded into the cars as they drive by. The only record kept is on the number of people benefiting from the food. No other questions asked. Fresh produce is also donated to Mondloch House.
