Calling all gardeners: Our food site at the AUMC Mission Center offers food to our neighbors in the Heritage Drive area. In 2016, we provided food to 3,100 individuals, who in turn were able to feed 11,800 family members. We provide nonperishable food and a small amount of perishable food donated by Food for Others. Last summer, we asked local farmers markets to donate excess produce and were blessed with some wonderful donations, but we can always use more. If you are putting in a garden this year, would you consider planting an extra row or two of produce for our food site? If you have any questions, please call Betsy Clevenger at 703-425-6424 (h) or 240-682-2067 (c). If you would be willing to go to local farmers markets to collect food,
please call Bill Sinclair at 703-966-8443.

In a previous year, children made the cross in the center. The thumbnail photo is from the 2013 Haiti Mission Trip.
