Feeding the Hungry
Caring for the needy and feeding the hungry has become central to our existence as a people of Christ. We have hosted 7 STOP HUNGER NOW Food Packing Event. We anticipate hosting our next mission at Round Hill Elementary School the Saturday after Easter. We package meals to be distributed by SHN around the world. Our total meals packaged is nearly 500,000 in the past six years. We thank the hundreds of volunteers and invite you to join us in changing this world into the Kingdom of God.
We have a garden and grow food to add to our feeding program of the needy in our area.
We also have chickens from which we gather eggs and add them to food baskets distributed monthly.
– via the Table
In the past a group of RHUMC members prepared dinner at a Leesburg site for people in need. Daily Bread, sponsored by Interfaith Council, served an average of 60-65 people who are fed at each meal. This is mentioned as a way of saying our mission and ministry specific change and we are always looking for new idea.
We have prepared food/meals and gathered clothing for the homeless in Washington DC This ministry has involved the youth and adults of our congregation. Upon returning to our church we often had a time of worship where we prayed for those whom we served and for the persons whose names were gathered on the trip.
– via the Closet
Western Loudoun churches together supplied the local Food Closet, which was located at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Purcellville. Canned and nonperishable food items are donated by the congregation and are available to local people in need. RHUMC children have participated by decorating grocery bags for members of the congregation to fill and return the following Sunday. (Contact: Elizabeth Ford) We now supply food from our location for the needy.

Youth and adults gather after church Worship and pack food into our bus. It and they are transported to Washington where they feed the homeless hand to hand.
