Hunger Missions

The Bulb – We partner with The Bulb to bring a mobile product Market to PPC every Thursday.  Together, we are creating a world where food is a right and not a privilege. It is free for everyone in the community. There are no qualifications, no one is turned away. If you have been at work all day and are exhausted, and seeing a friendly face is what you need most come. If you are just barely making it and the market would be the difference in your weekly budget, come. If don’t know where your next meal is coming from, we definitely want you to come and come often. Each of you are the reason we do what we do. We are the church. We are family.

A majority of the produce comes from small, sustainable North Carolina and South Carolina farms that are working to meaningfully connect local produce to the community.

RISE AGAINST HUNGER 

Several times each year Philadelphia volunteers will gather in the Kerr Building to help construct at least 12,000 meals to be sent overseas to needy families in poverty stricken countries. This mission is called RISE AGAINST HUNGER and our participation will help offset one of the biggest problems in the world today. We will need at least 80 volunteers to complete this project that should take about two hours from start to finish. Lunch for the volunteers will be provided. Your support of this mission will be deeply appreciated by those facing hunger on a daily basis.
