September 17 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm
It all started in 2022, when Angel Flewellyn began preparing a Sunday dinner for 12 homeless people. Now she prepares meals for almost 100, six days a week, at the Rosa Parks Transit Center in Detroit. She calls her ministry the Sunday Best Crew so the homeless can enjoy a home-cooked nutritious meal traditionally served on Sunday. Thanks to Angel, homeless seniors, veterans, young adults aged out of the foster care, and others struggling with mental illness, can increase their healthy eating habits and decrease the risk of serious health problems.
Most of the people she feeds do not qualify for government food assistance because they lack proper identification, which prevents their access to health care and services, and leaves them more vulnerable to chronic disease and illness. The Outreach Team selected this ministry to support the increasing number of vulnerable people in Detroit lining up for their only source of food. We will be asking for donations of lunch bag suitable fresh fruit to bring to church on Sept. 24, which we will deliver that day. You may also donate money during September towards the use of a food truck in the future. For more information go to sundaybestcrew.org or come to the Mission Moment after church on Sept.17 to watch a television broadcast about her ministry. Please see Janice or Harriet if you have any questions.
