The primary mission of the Brown Bag Ministry is to reach out to those in need and feed the hungry. We prepare and distribute 100 brown bag lunches on the first and third Saturdays of the month to a low-income senior apartment complex in Durham.
The ministry allows all ages in a family to participate. Families pack lunches together, experience brief communal prayer, and have face-to-face contact with people in need. Many types of youth-based parish or non-parish groups can easily participate (Youth Group, Y-Guides, Scouts, etc.). The experience takes about two hours on a Saturday morning.
