Serve Your City

Join us August 13 at the campus nearest you to battle food insecurity locally and globally. Together, we will build food kits, filling bags with lentils, rice, and spices, with the goal of providing 285,000 meals to Children of Vietnam, an organization that works to break the cycle of poverty. This is a great opportunity for our community to work together and contribute to worldwide efforts to eliminate hunger by 2030.

Invite your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to serve with you! All ages are welcome!  

You will also be invited to help our local partners distribute food locally. Once you register, you will get an email that will include which food items to bring.

What is Serve Your City?

A few times a year, we get together as a church community to serve our local communities in service projects stretching from San Francisco to the South Bay. There are opportunities for all ages, skill levels, and interests. 

What happens when you participate in Serve Your City?

You will see God bring hope, strength, and joy to those you help in the community, and you will be filled with joy as see your effort makes a tangible difference to those in need. When we serve others, we find purpose and joy that can't be found anywhere else. When we serve together, we build authentic community and grow in our own relationship with Jesus. When we serve the community, it brings hope. Faith is visible and within reach; the people we serve come closer to God and lives are transformed.

Who can participate?  

Everybody’s welcome to take part! We encourage you to invite your friends and neighbors to serve with you. This is a perfect opportunity to invite someone who's never visited Menlo Church, or church at all.
