Feeding the Homeless
June 4, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
MCC will be preparing 150 packets of food and dropping off at Interfaith Community Services‘s homeless shelter in Escondido. Interfaith, along with providing many programs to help homeless people towards self-sufficiency, serves breakfast to about 150 hungry individuals every morning and also provides them with a sack lunch for later in the day. By delivering these lunches we will help support this cause in helping individuals and families in their efforts towards self-sufficiency.
Just meet at MCC at 1:30pm! Additionally if you want to bring some of the food items, sign up here: http://bit.ly/29sDVcl
“And they are those who give food – in spite of their own need , to the needy, and the orphan, and the captive, [saying in their hearts], ‘We only feed you for the sake of God, and we desire nothing in return from you, not even a word of thanks.’’” (QUR’AN 76:8-9).
Did you know that San Diego’s homeless population is the 4th largest in the US, after Seattle, Los Angeles, and New York City? According to the HUD, there are 8,742 homeless persons in San Diego.
MCC is trying to do its bit to help out the homeless by arranging a feed the homeless event every month. More than 150 ready-to-eat packages will be prepared in MCC kitchen. Then delivered to homeless individuals in Downtown.
How can you participate?

2] Help in preparing the food packets at our monthly event (usually second Sunday of the month, at MCC kitchen)
3] Help in transporting and distributing the food packets in San Diego.
