    The Sunday meal(last Sunday of each month at noon, at Santa Rita Park is not a ministry of Morningstar but instead it is a ministry of ChristChurch For The City

    • Robert January 4, 2015 at 1:28 pm #

      Thank you Trei! I have replaced “Morning Star Missionary Baptist” with “Christ Church For The City”. I hope that is correct. We’ll confirm it during our next round of updating the meal guide.

  2. russell March 7, 2016 at 11:55 am #

    how often is this data updataded ?

    • GSE March 27, 2016 at 12:17 pm #

      russell, we try to keep it updated but don’t always succeed. The information currently posted is from last summer, so it is true that a time or location here and there might have changed. We’ll try to get an updated version out soon.

  3. Ruth December 14, 2016 at 11:35 am #

    Is there some place that has groceries available more than once a month? Like, past due date food donations from stores. Is there some place that has bread available on a regular basis? Thank you so much for the info.

  4. BA July 18, 2017 at 11:43 am #

    Is this list current?

  5. GSE July 23, 2017 at 3:53 pm #

    BA, sorry, the list is not current, it is from 2015. We are working on an update, but it is slow in coming. So you should definitely call first to confirm the address and, especially, the times.
