  • Ton of Food Campaign

    Sunday, May 5, 8:00 am - 10:15 am

    The day was drawing to a close, and the twelve came to him and said, “Send the crowd away, so that they may go into the surrounding villages and countryside, to lodge and get provisions; for we are here in a deserted place.” But Jesus said to them, “You give them something to eat.” – Luke 9:12 (NRSV) 

    When asked how to eradicate hunger from the world Mother Teresa responded with one word, “share.” It sounds so simple and actually it is. Every spring San Marino Community Church’s Board of Deacons share by sending a truck carrying a Ton of Food to the Food Bank at sister church Iglesia De la Comunidad. You can participate by picking up a grocery bag from the Information Center, the church office, Deacon table (or use your own). Fill it with nonperishable food items. Return it to the church office.
