Feed the Hungry
JARDIN DE MONTBRILLANT
Jardin de Montbrillant is a monthly Outreach project here in Geneva where we reach out directly to those in need, and supply a cooked meal to 200 + people once per month, year around. The Center, named Jardin de Montbrillant, is run by a local charitable organization located behind the central train station. They offer a free mid-day meal to anyone in need, weekly from Tuesday through Saturday. Our group leader can be contacted for questions by clicking here.
Our participation allows us once each month to plan a special meal with a team of approximately 8 people, members and friends of the church, who are willing to spend a few hours serving the less fortunate and offering a welcoming meal and smile. Team leaders organise the shopping for ingredients, and a willing group assists in meal preparation and service. Volunteers typically start at 10:30am, and finish by 2:30pm. Please check the sign up sheet in the Parish Hall to sign up, no experience necessary!
“If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday.”
“For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in.”
