Chestnut Ridge Christian Church in Marietta is a small congregation that seeks to tackle a big problem: hunger. In January, members participated in a food-packaging event with the international organization Stop Hunger Now, where more than 60 people worked to package 10,368 meals that will be sent overseas to feed the hungry.
Additionally, members raise funds to donate to Heifer International and participate in the MUST Ministries summer lunch program. They also continue to harvest their “Feed the Hungry” garden, which grows fresh, organic vegetables that they donate to local food pantries and people in need such as The Center for Family Resources, Marietta First Christian Church Food Pantry, The Extension for Women and MUST Ministries.
