All Faiths Food Bank Food Distribution

First Presbyterian Church is beginning a new partnership with All Faiths Food Bank to be an emergency food distribution point. All Faiths will deliver items to FPC for our distribution. We will use the parking lot outside Fellowship Hall. The food distribution will be by drive-through with our FPC volunteers loading cars as they circle in the parking lot during the allotted time.

Dave Householder, Co-moderator of the Mission and Justice Committee, is integrally involved arranging the plans for this partnership. Bob Kirkpatrick, also Co-moderator of the Committee, is coordinating the FPC volunteers. Have fun and fellowship while serving the community!
