87_mcef_LOGO_use_meNew Hanover Presbyterian provides support for MCEF (Mechanicsville Churches Emergency Functions) by collecting and donating non-perishable food items on the first Sunday of each month. MCEF includes churches in the Mechanicsville area of Hanover County, VA working together to provide for the needs of our community.  Services include: financial assistance, food, clothing, and the Senior Rides Program.

5 Cents a Meal

We also support the Presbyterian Hunger Program PC(USA) through a  special “5 cents a meal” offering on the third Sunday of each month. This collection goes to alleviate hunger throughout the region served by the Presbytery of the James.


Grace Fellowship

First Baptist Church in Richmond offers a hot meal and fellowship to those in need through the Grace Fellowship program, every Thursday throughout the year, from 5 – 7 p.m.  For many years now, New Hanover Presbyterian Church has volunteered to be a part of this important ministry at least twice a year, along with many other metro Richmond churches.  This special program not only offers support and a hot meal to those who are hungry or homeless, it offers its volunteers a vital opportunity to sit down, break bread, and share a conversation or prayer with someone you might not otherwise have the opportunity to get to know.  All that is required is a few hours of your time and a dish to share!  We meet at First Baptist on the corner of Boulevard and Monument.

Next volunteer date: Thursday, March 23

Rise Against HungerRise Against Hunger

Come and help us as we join forces with the Rise Against Hunger team to help combat the issue of hunger.  For .29 cents a meal our goal is to package over 10,000 meals. Each meal will be loaded with nutrients and protein and help to nourish those who are hungry around the world.

Next volunteer date at NHPC: Sunday, June 4 from 1 – 3 p.m.
We need you and your donations to help make this possible. And we want to see you there!
