Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done. -Proverbs 19:17
Feeding the Hungry
- Feeding the Hungry in Buffalo: Pendleton Center Church prepares and serves a meal one Sunday per month in the Seneca Babcock area of Buffalo at Seneca Street United Methodist Church. Seneca Street United Methodist Church serves an urban-poor neighborhood with many single mothers and their children.
- Feeding the Hungry in Niagara Falls: On the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Thursdays of each month Pendleton Center Church prepares and serves a free meal in the LaSalle area of Niagara Falls at First United Methodist Church. This inner-city church sits in a depressed residential and business area, that once boomed with Niagara Falls Industry. Now home to the elderly and lower-income persons, the outreach opportunities for the church are great.
