Modified Wednesday Connection Meal

Join us for a sacrificial meal which will help remind us of our blessings, financially support hunger relief in Camp Hill and Harrisburg and give us a taste of the same 30,000+ meals we packed with Stop Hunger Now! This sacrificial meal will offer rice, beans, a variety of soups, bread, salad bar, drinks and ice cream. The $5 cost remains the same but the proceeds, after expenses, will be split between our BackPack program to students in Camp Hill Schools and Helping Hands Ministry serving the homeless and hungry of downtown Harrisburg. We will also have a few prayer stations available to center our hearts and minds on the issue of local and world hunger.
