Holiday Meal Boxes
The Mission of this Ministry is to organize an annual food drive for the purpose of collecting and packaging specified holiday food items for families experiencing food insufficiency. The completed Holiday Meal Boxes are submitted to the House of Peace in support of their initiative to feed up to 2,000 families in need of Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. The House of Peace supplements each of these Holiday Meal Boxes with a ham or a turkey.
