Offering: Here at Westminster we share our offering every month with a different organization that shares our values or our mission. This month, we share half our undesignated offering with Hope’s Harvest, which mobilizes volunteers to collect unharvested produce and deliver it to people who need it. As an efficient and effective solution to the twin challenges of food waste and hungry people, farm-based food recovery strengthens our local food system and makes our communities less dependent on food shipped from thousands of miles away instead of what’s in our own backyard. The other half of the offering goes to support the good work of this community. To donate www.westminsteruu.org/donate
