As part of its growing Compassion Ministries community outreach, the Parish of Ballynure and Ballyeaston (Ballyclare) is launching ‘Munch on Mondays’ on May 10.
The rector, the Rev Jonny Campbell-Smyth, said: “This initiative works in partnership with Co-Op Foodshare who, like many supermarkets at the end of each day, dispose of so much perishable food that is still good to eat but has reached its ‘display by’ date. This food will now be donated to us, thanks to Co-Op Ballynure.”
Jonny continued: “We therefore want to bless people who are finding it hard to make ends meet. Each Monday the food will be set out from 11am at the front of St John’s, Doagh Road, Ballyclare, and will be given away free of charge – no catches. We pray that God will bless those who receive each week.”
