Kensington Launching Hunger Free Zone (Photos & Video)
St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Kensington is teaming up with Bethesda Help to launch an expanded food delivery service to local families in need.
The “20895—Hunger Free Zone” campaign aims to deliver a three-day supply of groceries on weekdays to Kensington-area families within 24 hours of a request for assistance.
“Several years ago we felt God calling our church to feed our neighbors in need,” says Adam Snell, senior pastor at St. Paul’s UMC Kensington. “What started in several small ways is now emerging in a big way.”
The church is distributing lawn signs for residents and businesses in Kensington to declare their homes and workplaces hunger-free zones. Postcards in English and Spanish are being sent to schools, government offices and social service agencies to inform individuals and families how to receive emergency deliveries of food.
