The Agape Market an event for local community members. We share a meal, have activities for children, distribute food supplies, toiletries and clothes. The Agape Market is conducted every 3rd Wednesday of the month. It was temporarily halted when the influx of refugees grew, but was reestablished in August 2019. Since then, we have served over 530 families.
We conducted 8 “in person” markets prior to March 17 when we had to adapt our process due to Covid-19. Instead of having a group dinner and market, we currently provide food and supplies individually. The families come to the church, stay in their cars and volunteers bring boxes of food to them.
We have recently been distributing food donated by “Farmer’s to Families” which aims to provide food that would otherwise go to waste due to supply chain issues brought about by Covid-19.
