MESH Cafe - Presbyterian Church of Upper Montclair
Those who are generous are blessed,
for they share their bread with the poor.
Proverbs 22:9 (NRSV)
MESH Café is back for in-person service starting Fall 2021! Sign up below to experience this wonderful service opportunity.
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. Please arrive to serve and/or deliver food to Grace Presbyterian Church, 153 Grove Street in Montclair, on Saturdays by 5:30PM.
MESH Café guests must sign up in advance so MESH can estimate weekly guests. MESH staff will advise PCUM volunteers of approximate guest counts each week. Unvaccinated guests are asked to take meals to-go while vaccinated guests are invited to eat together in the Grace Presbyterian fellowship hall. Guests are required to maintain social distance and wear masks except when eating or drinking.
