Meal-a-Month for Manos de Cristo
Did you know that 1 in 4 households in Austin is food insecure? This means that thousands of families are uncertain day to day about how they will keep nutritious food on the table. But you can help. Every second Sunday of the month, you can pick up a blue bag after worship and fill it with items for Manos de Cristo’s food pantry in East Austin. Return your bag the following Sunday to the Parlor or Narthex, and together, we can make a difference for our neighbors in need.
