In these pressing and uncompromising times of COVID-19, as food insecurity exponentially grows, the SEPA Synod’s The Welcome Church has launched a new feeding program entitled Welcome Bread.
Welcome Bread is a food program designed to produce nutritious meals that can be delivered quickly to hungry people. All that is needed to participate is white bread, grape jelly, creamy peanut butter, and zipper sandwich bags along with a willingness to make sandwiches. Since the onset of COVID-19, over 30,000 sandwiches have been delivered to people living on the streets in both the city of Philadelphia and the surrounding counties.
Welcome Bread asks the following: use only white bread, loaded up with store brand jelly and creamy peanut butter (better for people with dental issues). Place the sandwich, left whole, not cut in half, in a sandwich size zipper bag (very important for transfer and storage).
You can participate by dropping off completed sandwiches or sandwich making items (white bread, creamy peanut butter, jelly or zip bags) at each of Reformation’s Worship on the Way events scheduled for Saturday October 24, and Saturday November 21, at 10:00 am. To learn more, contact Deacon Beth. Let’s serve our neighbors and build a living faith, together in love!
