Minute for Mission
The Food Center at Morrisville Presbyterian Church
Some of our NPC Mission envelope/online offerings are designated to support the Food Center at Morrisville Presbyterian Church (website: www.mpcusa.org/food-center), as well as non-perishable food donations.
Our church is committed to meeting the physical needs of our community through a strong partnership with the Food Center. We have responded to the increasing rates of those needing food assistance during the pandemic with quarterly food drives, benefiting those in the Lower Bucks County and Trenton, NJ areas.
In addition to the quarterly food drives being held at Northampton Presbyterian Church for delivery to the Food Center, a table and basket are available in our narthex. Please drop off your non-perishable donations any Sunday when you are attending worship. All items are welcome, but if you are would like suggested items to purchase, these are some: canned beans, canned fruit and vegetables, canned meat entrée (stew, chili), canned soup, canned tuna fish, cereal, macaroni and cheese in box, milk (evaporated or shelf stable), pasta, peanut butter or jelly in plastic jar, rice, spaghetti sauce in plastic jar.
The mission of the Food Center is to provide supplemental food assistance to food-insecure families in Lower Bucks County and the greater Trenton area in a caring and respectful manner. They have been doing this since 1997. Any individual or family residing in this service area may visit the Food Center for assistance. The Food Center is entirely volunteer operated and is dependent on donations of food and money from the community. Based on family size, clients receive a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, eggs, dairy products, bakery items, personal care items and household items, as well as diapers and pet food.
“Ways to Help the Food Center at Morrisville Presbyterian Church” – Our next Drive-Thru Food Drive will be scheduled for late Spring.
