Gleaning for Good
The new Food and Faith Ministry team at First Pres invites you to join us as we try our hand at picking lettuce to support Sister Robin Street Market and other South Florida Food pantries.  Gleaning of fields is referred to in the Bible and is the act of collecting leftover crops from farmers fields after they have been harvested.  We will be joining Society of Saint Andrews on Saturday, January 29th from 8:30am to 10:30am at the Roth Farm in Belle Glade, Florida.  All over the age of 13 are welcome to participate in this ministry project.  Please reach out to kathymayers@gmail.com with any questions and to RSVP.  This is something we can continue to partner on through the Spring season if there is interest.
