One half of Second Unitarian’s offering received in October will go to Saving Grace, a perishable food rescue and delivery agency.
Their mission is to connect perishable food from local food purveyors to local nonprofits that feed our hungry, while raising awareness and educating the community on food waste and hunger.
Saving Grace picks up perishable food donations in refrigerated trucks from local restaurants, caterers, cafeterias, grocery stores, delis, and food distributors. They do not warehouse food, but deliver it the same day free of charge to agencies serving families in need such as pantries, missions, after-school programs, daycares, senior centers, and churches.
To nominate an organization for our Share the Plate program, visit the church website or contact the Social Justice Committee.
