We Serve Those Who Are Hungry

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.

Friendship Garden
In March of 2012, a group of MPBC members got together and decided to create our Friendship Garden. They built nine raised beds, filled them with top notch garden soil and planted a variety of vegetables. The garden plot is between the Selwyn Avenue entrance to the Cornwell Center and the brick wall behind the Heaton Hall kitchen.  The garden produce is donated to Friendship Trays, a local organization that delivers more than 600 meals daily to elderly, handicapped or convalescing people who would otherwise go without.
