For more than a year, a Poplar congregation has been Sharing One’s Surplus with the hungry. On the second Saturday of each month, Mission Covenant Church transforms into a grocery store. Volunteers unload a truck full of fresh produce, split it into shares and distribute it. The food is available to anyone, regardless of income, for a $25 cash donation.
