2018 Lenten Food Drive – Don’t Give Up / Give Away !
For over 25 years, the Friday Mission Lunch program has been providing “the best, seated hot meals” in Paris for 64 guests in need of a meal and community. Left-overs are provided to those who could not get, or do not want, a seat at the table. We serve approximately 70 people per week. To keep these meals going for many more years to come, we need your help yet again this year.
For Lent, instead of giving up your favorite food, give away a food or kitchen item to the Friday Mission Lunch program.
A list of non-perishable items can be found here and at the back of the church, which we use regularly to prepare these meals on a shoe-string budget – a gourmet meal for less than 3€ per person per week. You may leave your donation in the marked plastic crates in the chapel/organ area from Sunday 18th February through Sunday 25th March at the American Cathedral, 23 avenue George V, 75008 Paris.
Thank you for supporting our Friday Mission Lunch! To give your time as a volunteer, send an email to email@example.com.
