The congregation of Harmony United Methodist Church understood that the town of Harmony was hungry, and they had several successful programs in place that served food to community members in need. As a part of the pilot cohort of Faith in Rural Communities-affiliated churches, Harmony UMC looked inward to identify its own unique gifts and assets, strengths it could use to help address the town’s food insecurity on a deeper level. They found that most families whom Harmony UMC served in their local food pantry have limited English proficiency, often prohibiting them from receiving promotions at work or even getting the jobs needed to adequately provide for their families.
