Empowering Title I communities to let the gospel in with fresh produce and sustained relationships.
Who We Are
According to a study conducted by Feeding America
, 1 in 8 children living in Virginia experience hunger. We are a group of volunteers who have met the loving, determined, but disadvantaged communities surrounding NoVa's Title I schools
and want to give our neighbors a "hand-up" through the optional selection of fresh produce.
What to Expect
Every Saturday morning, we gather at the MBC Tysons campus to load upwards of 4500 lbs of food into trucks for transportation to a selected neighborhood, either near a Title I school or community center, to set up a free Farmer's Market. Once open to the public, the local residents can shop at no cost for fruits, vegetables, eggs, meat, bread, cereal, dried goods and so much more! Volunteers from MBC greet local residents with warmth to create an organic and natural relationship-building environment where the love of Christ is shown and the gospel of hope is shared.
