Serving Your Hungry Neighbors

 

Those who are generous are blessed,
for they share their bread with the poor.

Proverbs 22:9 (NRSV)

Montclair Emergency Services for the Homeless (M.E.S.H)

PCUM is an active member of a coalition of Montclair-area churches and synagogues working together to provide hospitality and assistance to adults living on the streets of our hometown. MESH Café serves people in need in our local Montclair community. 

As part of the MESH Café ministry, volunteers from the Presbyterian Church of Upper Montclair (PCUM) provide meals for homeless and hungry neighbors in Montclair on the first and fourth Saturdays of each month. PCUM is committed to providing full meals (an entree with side, an appetizer, and a dessert) for MESH guests and PCUM volunteers are invited to serve meals to guests on the first Saturday of each month.  Please arrive to serve and/or deliver food to Grace Presbyterian Church, 153 Grove Street in Montclair, on Saturdays by 5:30PM.
