We support many Charlotte agencies that serve our neighbors in need of food. Join the team that provides lunch at St. Peter’s Soup Kitchen or dinner at the Men’s Shelter. Our monthly Rice Bowl Offering supports hunger ministries in our community through Loaves and Fishes and internationally through Church World Service Hunger Relief.
St. Peter’s Soup Kitchen
Every second Saturday morning of the month, a group of MPBC volunteers prepare a noon meal for our neighbors at the Soup Kitchen located at the Urban Ministry Center. Tasks include: preparation of soup, sandwiches, salad, fruit, dessert buffet and clean up.
