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.  Read more about MCC’s Grocery Box Program. 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.)

Empty boxes are available at MCC’s Material Resource Center (517 W Trout Run Rd, Ephrata, open 8-4:30 M-F) and at the ACC office (2257 Old Philadelphia Pike, Lancaster, pickup upon request). Boxes can also be delivered upon request.

Filled boxes may be dropped off at the Material Resource Center or the ACC office. You can also contact the conference office to arrange for pick up. Congregations may choose to collect boxes leading up to the Fall Assembly as we have traditionally done, or they may be collected in November. 

Donate towards a box by credit card HERE or by sending a check made out to the ACC Peace and Justice Committee to 2257 Old Philadelphia Pike, Lancaster, PA 17602.

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