The faithful of St John the Baptist Russian Orthodox church participated in NJ District FOCA Food Packaging Outreach at Sts Peter and Paul Russian Orthodox Cathedral, Passaic, along with other members and friends of the NJ District Fellowship of Orthodox Christians in America. We packaged 7,200 shelf-stable meals that had been purchased in bulk from The Outreach Program, a non-profit organization based out of Iowa. The meals will be distributed by each FOCA chapter to various food pantries and other charities in North Jersey. It was a wonderful afternoon of fellowship, with attendance and participation far exceeding the expectations. May the Lord bless everyone who donated toward and/or participated in the outreach.
