MSNBC recently featured the Berean church in Newark, N.J., for their efforts in providing meals to needy families during the COVID-19 crisis.
Prior to the outbreak, the Berean church operated their food pantry twice a month on Sundays, faithfully feeding 100 to 200 families. Due to the pandemic, however, the demand for food increased. Many people, including church members, were furloughed or lost their jobs completely.
When food suppliers asked if they would be will- ing to receive more food for distribution, community service leader Felice Williams and Pastor Henry Davis got on board.
