During this critical time with COVID-19, the Nickel a Meal Mission program is one way in which PWNC can respond, through over-and-above giving, to the Biblical mandate to show compassion and do justice for those in need. The program provides an avenue for outreach and ministry through which each member of Presbytery can participate equally. The plan of Nickel a Meal is very simple. Each person puts 5 cents (or more) in a special bank for each meal he/she eats. This amounts to $54.75 per person per year. The money is sent to Presbytery, and twice a year the Presbytery’s Hunger Committee reviews grant requests from regional ministries working with those who are poor which meet Presbytery’s guidelines.
