Hunger Mission Collection In Your Church 

Collect your spare change, encourage a Nickel-A-Meal Hunger Offering or hold a food drive, raise hunger awareness in your congregation, Sunday school class or with your Presbyterian Women or Presbyterian Men. Right now in Hampton Roads and the Eastern Shore, one in six children is at risk of hunger, and over 176,000 individuals are food insecure. Our neighbors need our help!

NICKEL-A-MEAL (NAM) GRANT APPLICATION 

NAM emphasizes daily participation by each member of the household. The idea is to build a consciousness among participants that all of us are responsible for helping to end hunger and that NAM  will become part of our daily walk with God. It doesn't take away from other mission but works best when a lot of people give very small amounts of money. Asking members of all ages to contribute a few cents at every meal may not look like very much, but do the math.

In the last few years NAM contributions have dropped 60%.  THIS IS OUR CALL TO ACTION!  

We dream of 100% participation in our presbytery! If every member in our presbytery gave just 5 cents (or more) in a special bank for each meal he/she eats. This amounts to $54.75 per person per year. What if every member particapted (13,920)  thats alot of spare change! ($762,120.00)  Over time our spare change adds up and makes a substantial donation that can be used to alleviate hunger and provide direct hunger relief in Hampton Roads.
 

The Food Bank serves 1 in 4 people in our local community and that number isn't getting smaller. NAM grants help PEVA churches and local organizations fill the gap. NAM helps to feed those who are hungry in our communities.
