First Presbyterian Church of Grinnell is a community which seeks to pitch its tent where God is dwelling and where Christ is acting - i.e., in the world around us, wherever people need justice, love, the basic goods of life and faith, and release from violence and oppression.

Food Recovery Network is an organization which began in colleges on the East Coast to help take unserved food from the colleges’ dining services which would otherwise go to waste. In late 2013 Dylan Bondy, a student at Grinnell College, organized a group of students as part of the FRN to help take unserved food from the college’s dining service, and repurpose it for distribution to hungry people in Grinnell.
First Presbyterian Church is partnered with the FRN at the college to serve as a distribution site on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays of most weeks. Currently, recipients of the food are selected by MICA and given vouchers to present to pick up the food, which they take home to be reheated and served.
Volunteers are needed to help with the distribution and light clean up after, which takes just over an hour starting about 11:50 a.m. and finishing about 1:00 p.m. If you are interested in helping with the distribution please contact David Cranston at 990-1610 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
