St. Bartholomew's Church Challenge: An outreach project

Related Special Reports

Saint Bartholomew's Episcopal Church in Poway started a Church Challenge in July to help feed the homeless and hungry. Since then the church has collected more than 1,500 pounds of rice, 450 jars of peanut butter and jelly, 1,200 boxes of macaroni and cheese and 600 cans of beans.

The outreach effort was spearheaded by Saint Bartholomew's rector, Fred Thayer, along with the Sunday school children who, each week, would enter church carrying their donations, inspiring others to help make the food mountain grow. At the end of each month the children would surround the donations at the altar for a blessing before it was delivered to Interfaith Community Services, The Episcopal Refugee Network and the Episcopal Church Center.
