Frankford Memorial United Methodist Church
In 2017, By Grace Alone Christian Reformed Church of Frankford arranged for America’s Grow A Row of Pittstown, NJ (AGAR) to supply farm fresh fruit and vegetables for distribution at Frankford Memorial United Methodist Church to qualified recipients on Saturday mornings during the harvest season (late July to early November).
In 2018, an average of 16 volunteers and 2 drivers served produce to an average of 49 clients representing an average of 312 people, including themselves. This year, the program resumed on Saturday, July 27, at Frankford Memorial.
Volunteers plant and harvest the produce at AGAR. Volunteers transport the produce from AGAR to Frankford Memorial (4-hour round trip). Volunteers from By Grace Alone and Frankford Memorial give the produce to the clients. In addition, donated clothing and household items are available.
The Frankford Farmers Market is a great example of people coming together to help others in need – all without any government involvement. If you would like to volunteer to help out with the program, call Pat at 215-288-9800.
