Picnic in the Park

Picnic in the Park offers healthy sack lunches to all who need them each summer when school is out. Aldersgate UMC partners with Feeding America and the Food Bank to make this project possible. We need YOUR help to get the word out!

Children’s Meals include a meat sandwich, fruit, vegetable, and milk.  Adult meals include water, meat sandwich, and granola bars.  Each day we will have fans, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, sports equipment, and more!  Once a week we have sno cones and water balloons.


Serving a free lunch to children and families during June & July, Monday-Friday 11am-12:45pm at Ken Johnston Park. Sandwich making Sundays and Wednesdays at 6pm. Learn more about Picnic in the Park. Contact: Lydia Locke

Hope on Wheels

During the school year, Aldersgate teams up with Manna House to use their food truck to provide dinners for families. We set up at Weatherly Elementary (usually) on the first Monday of the month. You can eat there or take the food with you. Join us for food or come help us prepare and/or pass out the food to our neighbors.
