Feed the Hungry
"For I was hungry and you gave me food...
Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me."
Everyone has the right to have access healthy food. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Many of our neighbors struggle with food insecurity.
In Brown County, over 23,000 people do not have access to enough food to lead a healthy life. We as Catholic Christians are called to love our neighbors and ensure that basic needs of everyone are met.
At Resurrection, there are opportunities for you to participate with feeding the hungry:
Dinners at St. John's Shelter
Resurrection Parish is once again offering a meal for the guests at the shelter. You can participate in several ways:
Help Prepare the meal.
Purchase the beverages and/or plates, silverware, etc.
Deliver the meal to St John’s Homeless Shelter.
Serve the meal from 5:30-7:15pm.
Make a monetary donation to help pay for the meal. Make check to Resurrection with memo Meals for St John’s
If want to do this with a group of friends or neighbors, you can choose the date you want. We will reserve the Gathering Area kitchen in the afternoon of the meal for use by those preparing meals. The menus are flexible.
