Food Gleaning @ FPC Nashville

 

During the June Vacation Bible School, FPC Mission Campers helped to rescue food in partnership with the Society of St. Andrews by saving green beans and squash destined for the waste pile simply because they were too large or too small for food processing businesses.  These campers and friends saved and packed 2900 pounds of vegetables equal to 8700 servings of food.  Upon completion of the packaging, representatives from local agencies arrived on campus to pick up the bagged vegetables and quickly return it their kitchens where it was immediately prepared to feed hungry people.
