All are welcome. Just show up. You must be healthy.

If you have fruit trees, the Sack Lunch Ministry would love to have your ORANGES, APPLES, PEARS, OR BANANAS. We’d even take your produce, like LETTUCE, TOMATOES, ETC. You must harvest them yourself. Drop off at the Hospitality Center: Weekdays 8:45-10:00am and Saturdays 7:00-8:00am.
