Thomas will be providing bagged lunches once a month. Contact: Kristen Heinze for details: firstname.lastname@example.org
The organization developed as a joint collaboration with South Western PA Synod and the Pittsburgh Presbytery.
There’s always a question about the numbers in our name: Is it an address or part of a phone number, or what? The 3 represents the collaboration of Lutherans, Presbyterians and the Brookline city neighborhood. The 4 is on behalf of the 1, Christ for everyone one! We are “by, for and with” the folks God has called us to serve.
Our mission to feed and nurture folks physically and spiritually has grown since our start in 2015 with a worship service and meals held in Miesel Hall of St. Mark’s Lutheran church in Brookline.
In March of 2020, when Covid hit, we adapted to the challenges brought by the virus. Saint Marks granted us the use of their parking pad, as the kitchen and and adjoining hall is not open to the public. The parking pad was large enough to serve outdoors following socially distant guidelines. Our call to feed a struggling community with hospitality and love, was met by serving boxed meals and communion to go every Wednesday. God’s abundant love has provided Meal Partners from a variety of churches and groups that serve on designated Wednesdays, as well faithful Ministry Partners who provide monetary support.
WE AVERAGE 50 MEALS PER WEEK AND ANY MEALS NOT DISTRIBUTED ARE DONATED TO BROOKLINE MEALS ON WHEELS FOR THEIR CLIENTS.
3 for 1 provide meals, Communion, racks of donated coats and hygiene items out on the street every Wednesday rain or shine from 5-6pm. Thomas began participating in December 2020 providing bagged meals.
The Food Helpers program will take place on Tuesday, July 12 and will continue the second Tuesday of every month in the Left Lot from 9-11am.
Food Helpers is to serve as a short-term emergency food bank for people who have lost their jobs, have family issues, health issues, etc. This will serve those who do not qualify for the regular monthly Food Bank. Volunteers are welcome to help with traffic control, greet clients, load boxes, etc.
