Green Harvest Food Pantry

Start: Thu, February 25   End: Thu, May 27 | 5:30pm - 7:30pm

Green Harvest (GH) is a not-for-profit organization that serves Will, Kendal and DuPage county residents in need of food.

 

NPC supports GH both financially and through monthly participation by the members of the Diaconate to bag groceries for clients and load them into their vehicles. Four to five Deacons participate on the fourth Thursday every month throughout the year. 

 

GH, although small, is designed as much as possible to resemble a "normal" grocery store experience. Once a client finishes shopping the Deacons unload the carts and bag the groceries. Once bagged the groceries are taken outside and loaded into the client’s vehicle. 

 

In many instances Deacons initiate conversation with the clients and learn some of their life story. This can result in prayer for the client and the client’s situation. 

 

The Diaconate would like to make this service opportunity known and available to members of NPC to participate. Individuals (18 and above) are eligible to participate. Their is no training required, just be willing to greet people warmly with a smile and be willing to bag groceries.

 

A Deacon would also be present to manage the check-in process, administer any changes to the evenings process and answer any questions those present may have. Want to sign up? Contact NPCdeacons@npchurch.org.
