the past 30 years, Emmanuel's Food Center has helped feed over 60
families a month through staples and other non-perishable items
donated by members of the parish and community. Now our Missions and
Environmental Stewardship Committees have teamed up to create The
Outreach Community Garden of Emmanuel (OCGE) which will provide fresh produce to supplement and enrich the diet of Food Center clients.
community effort will reach to our eldest and youngest participants to
make sure everyone of our neighbors can receive the proper nutrition
our bodies need!
