This is a community effort of many churches and individuals to help bring agricultural assistance, community development and social services for the hungry and needy of the world.
Proceeds from the sale help support the work of the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC), a cooperative relief and service agency located in Akron, Pennsylvania. MCC was started by Mennonites
in 1920 to help alleviate the famine in Russia. Today it has numerous volunteers working in America and countries around the world. Eighty percent of relief sale proceeds go toward MCC efforts. Twenty percent is distributed locally to help people in need.
