The Outreach Committee is organizing a food packing event with a Christian non-profit organization called Feed My Starving Children.


This organization targets children who are in the most severe circumstances, those suffering from severe malnutrition and threatened with death and starvation. 


Meals are hand-packed with rice, soy, dried vegetables and a nutritionally complete blend of vitamins and minerals into bags which are then sealed, boxed, placed on pallets and shipped to partners working hard to reach the neediest children around the world. 


The food packing will be held at Delaware Valley University.  If you are interested in helping, and we certainly hope you would consider it, you can sign up for either;


Sat. 10-28  2-4PM


Sun. 10-29  1-3 PM


This is a great family event, and children will enjoy participating.


If you have questions, or would like to sign up to volunteer, please contact Mary Lou Parry at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 215 783 4066.
