2 Cents a Meal/Pantry Sunday
The program is a devotional exercise designed to remind us of the poor and needy at meal times. Individuals and families commit to give 2 pennies per person each meal time as they say their mealtime prayers remembering the poor. Some people include their snacks, too.
This money and food is collected on the last Sunday of each month. The food is taken to the Salvation Army Food Bank. 1/2 of the money collected is given to the Hunger Task Force which is sponsored by the Diocese of Ohio and 1/2 of the money is divided as follows: 1/4 going to the Akron/Canton Regional Food Bank and 1/4 going to Wadsworth FISH.
The Wadsworth FISH organization meets with people in need from 6:00-8:00 p.m. every Monday and Tuesday at St. Mark’s. You may come in and register at that time if you need assistance.
The Wadsworth Women Big Book study meets at St. Mark’s every Wednesday evening beginning at 7:00 p.m.
