In our age of plenty, we believe that no child or person should go without. Feeding the hungry and providing food security to those on the periphery of our society is part of the call to justice that is central to the Hebrew, Christian and Muslim faiths. Together we can be part of the solution.
It all started with a simple conversation between two clergy, Rabbi David Cohen-Henriquez of Temple Sinai of Marblehead and Pastor James (Jim) Bixby of the Clifton Lutheran Church, also in Marblehead. Last year we were thrilled to have the Islamic Society of the North Shore join us in the venture. The Manna Project, a community effort to feed those in need, grew into a project that ended up with 150 volunteers (and three congregations) packing 21,000 meals for the Lynn Shelter, New American Center, Salem Pantry and the Lynn Hunger Association.
Our hope is to have you join us next year on March 29 to keep expanding The Manna Project – God Feeds God’s People.
