The Food Ministry is the newest of the six featured ministries supported by the Outreach Commission. Parishioners participate in a number of local food ministries. For more information on any of these opportunities, please contact food@stpetersgv.org.

St. Peter’s Ecumenical Monday Dinners is sponsored by St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Phoenixville. Volunteers from St. Peter’s Church in the Great Valley assemble in teams, to prepare and serve a nutritious meal each month. Two shifts are available for each evening meal: one from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. (prep and cook) and one from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. (serve and cleanup).

Darby Dinners involves assistance with meal service at the Darby Recreation Center in Darby, Pennsylvania. Affiliated with Episcopal Community Services, this outreach opportunity seeks to alleviate systemic hunger that stems from societal poverty. Parishoners also gather the ingredients for many families to have a special Easter meal.

Additional activities vary and have included packing weekend lunches for school children, serving summer lunches and packing food for international distribution.
