Richfield United Methodist Church regularly makes sandwiches for 363 Days, an organization whose mission is to feed the homeless in the Twin Cities metro area. Feeding the hungry through sandwich-making provides a great way to bring together all generations in service.
Richfield UMC's most recent sandwich making took place immediately following the Maundy Thursday worship service. It was a meaningful evening of worship and service as we shared the meal of Jesus and then made sandwiches for the church's most hungry neighbors.
At each sandwich making event, members enjoy fellowship while making at least 1,000 sandwiches. One participant noted: “It is a wonderful thing to be part of such a gracious community that works so well together to help our neighbors”.
