Agape Local - Feeding Friends

During this global pandemic, much of what was once routine in our lives is now unknown. For some, the “unknown” is how they will ensure a stable food supply with enough to eat every day. Food insecurity has exploded among communities large and small. In our own town of Westfield, a group of school principals, teachers, nurses, and related staff have identified at least 30 families who need food support. As a church, we feel compelled to step in and help our neighbors. We have developed a plan to provide these families with a weekly box of staples – fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, jar/canned goods, cereal, rice/potatoes/pasta, body wash, and laundry detergent.

If you are able to help someone else in need, we invite you to sign up and donate what you can. We request items be delivered to The Robinson Room in the Parish House from 9:00am - 3:00pm Mondays through Thursdays.  Items will be separated, and boxes will be assembled for families, while maintaining social distance, for pick-up on Fridays. This will ensure that the families have groceries for the weekend.

Thank you for helping us help our neighbors!

A VolunteerSpot has been setup online with the items that are needed. This list will be available for anyone who wishes to provide the requested products. A new list will be created every week.

If you prefer, monetary donations will also be accepted, and appreciated. You may donate on the “Give” page on our website, through Zelle, or send a check to our Comptroller, Tina Barulli, labelled “Food Boxes” or "Agape Local" in the memo space.
