Faith Church in New Milford, had a large response to the first distribution of its “Manna from Heaven” program on Wednesday, which provides 250 meals from four local restaurants to people in need.
Meals will be offered every Wednesday through April and May in the church parking lot from 4 to 6 p.m.
The church has committed to spend $20,000 over the eight weeks on these meals, helping the restaurants as well as the community. Bags of food from the church’s pantry were also distributed.
