Harvest Helps MATURA Fight Hunger

Nov 1, 2022

Local gardeners are sharing their bounty to help Adams County MATURA Outreach Center fill its food pantry in the fight against hunger. The First Presbyterian Church of Corning recently harvested sweet potatoes, white potatoes, zucchini, and tomatoes from its Mission Garden. Church members harvested the produce the first week of October. With food security a local issue, the church worked with MATURA and community gardeners to help meet MATURA’s food pantry needs. First Presbyterian’s mission and outreach committee organized the mission garden and church members helped with the garden and harvest.

Although the harvest has ended, hunger knows no season, and First Presbyterian will host its drive-through dinner again to support the Adams County MATURA Food Pantry. The dinner, which will feature pork loin, potato casserole, green beans, a roll, and dessert, will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on November 17 at the church. Enter the alley on the west side of First Presbyterian Church from 10th Street. Freewill donations will be accepted for the dinner. Deliveries are available by calling the First Presbyterian Church at 641-322-4917 by November 16.
