MCC Grocery Box Collection

Each year, MCC East Coast partners with Anabaptist churches to distribute nearly 3,000 packed grocery bags through congregations’ local ministries. The bags include:

  • vegetable oil (32 oz.)
  • pasta (2 lbs.)
  • raisins (1 lb.)
  • white rice (32 oz.)
  • 2 cans meat (chicken or tuna) (12oz.)
  • 1 can tomato sauce (15 oz.)
  • 2 cans fruit (14 – 20 oz.)
  • 2 cans vegetables (14 – 16 oz.)
  • 2 cans beans (15.5 oz.)
  • 1 box of cereal (14 – 18 oz.)
  • peanut butter (28 oz.)

ACC Congregations are invited to fill boxes and bring them to the Annual Assembly on October 26 at Forest Hills Mennonite Church where they will be collected by MCC staff. Empty boxes are available at the ACC office (2257 Old Philadelphia Pike, Lancaster) or at the MCC Material Resource Center ( 517 W Trout Run Rd, Ephrata).

This is a project of the ACC Peace & Justice Committee.
