Together we can fight hunger in our community. Join us at an upcoming Free Farmers Market (in partnership with America’s Grow A Row), or donate food during one of our Brown Bag food drives.
Brown Bag Initiative
Throughout the year, we host several food drives to collect staple items to be distributed through our Partner organizations (like New Bethany Ministry). On designated Sundays, we will have grocery bags (with lists of items to purchase) available for your to pickup at church. Simply, fill the bags with food/ supplies, and bring them back to church with you the the following Sunday.
Suggested food to donate:
- Canned meats (chicken, tuna, corned beef)
- Canned vegetables
- Canned Fruit
- Pasta Sauce
- Peanut butter
Summer 2019 Brown Bag Initiative Food Drop-off Dates: 7/21 & 8/21 drop off food at BECAHI.
Free Farmers Market
We are partnering with America’s Grow-a-Row, to bring fresh fruits and vegetables to the hungry in our community. Volunteers are needed every Saturday from late July through late October to setup and distribute food. Volunteers serve Saturdays from late July through late October to pick up the boxes of fresh food at the farm Pittstown, NJ, and/or to distribute produce at the Free Farmers Market tables on Saturday mornings.

This past fall, our congregation helped stuff 700 backpacks with food and goodies for students at Marvine and Freemansburg Elementary Schools as a blessing to them this Thanksgiving Holiday. It was a joy to see our youngest to our grand adults serving together to bless Bethlehem. Stay tuned for more details on how you can get involved with our next Blessing Bags Initiative.
