Background of the Peace Meal Project

On September 30, 2006, we began a free fellowship meal for all, which we now serve every Saturday from 4:00 - 5:30 pm in the Parish Hall. We call this meal program the Peace Meal Project because we know that a meal is only a small piece of the puzzle when it comes to addressing poverty, inequality, and loneliness. But, we also believe that sharing a fellowship meal together brings us closer to the Reign of God that we hope for - a community of justice, peace, and dignity for all people.

Our first Peace Meals took place on Feb. 19, 2007, in collaboration with AMAAM, on March 28, 2007, in partnership with Kingdom House, and a World Refugee Awareness Day on June 20, 2007, co-sponsored by AMAAM, the St. Louis International Institute, and the St. Louis Save Darfur Coalition. After two years of planning and successful grant writing, the Peace Meal Project started full time in May 2009.
