Mobile Food Drive is *this* Saturday, April 25, 9am-11am in the parking lot at Church of the Ascension, 21641 Great Mills Road Lexington Park, MD. Partnering with the MD Food Bank & Farming-4-Hunger, this is basically a Free Farmer’s Market. Often, fresh produce, meat, milk, and other excellent options (but we won’t know until the truck pulls in). Spread the word, and see you Saturday morning.

The Church of the Ascension Drive-up food pantry will re-open on Thursday April 23 from 3-6 pm and the following Monday from 9 am until noon. This will be the new pantry schedule.
