Union Baptist Church
For nearly 30 years, UBC members and volunteers from other greater Hartford service organizations have provided free, warm meals for people in our community who are in need.
Ministry Leader: Deacon Harry Jenkins
Early every Saturday and Sunday morning, our UBC doors open to welcome children and families looking for a physical and spiritual food. We listen. We nurture. We offer 300–400 meals each month, with the hopes of providing more.
Ministry Leaders: Trustee Felicia Morrison and Deaconess Linette Hill
Senior Brown Bag Ministry
The You Make a Difference Outreach Ministry was created to meet the dietary needs of senior UBC members. We want our seniors to stay healthy and active and help reduce the costs of personal food expenses, since many are living on fixed incomes.
Ministry members gather on the second Saturday of each month to receive food donated by members of the congregation, sort, bag, and arrange the food for delivery to our seniors. Caring notes are included in each bag, along with literature on healthy foods-specifically fruits and vegetables!
Ministry Leader: JoAnn Lewis
