The Berkeley Neighborhood Food Project’s next Harvest Day is Saturday, June 8. We want to bring all of the church’s contributions together on Sunday, June 2, so we can give thanks together, and pray for all the hungry folks in our community. So before you head out the door next Sunday, be sure to grab that green bag full of food and bring it with you – and bring it with you into worship! If you are interested in helping on Harvest Day, please contact Pantry Director Dharma Galang.
