Serving Our Hungry Neighbors

Providence Meeting has been assisting our neighbors in Upper Darby by providing food for over thirty years. “Our meeting remains a part of a large consortium of faith communities in Delaware County which serves dinners at the Life Center in Upper Darby as well as a once weekly meal for 100 people delivered to Christ Lutheran Church in Upper Darby. These meals feed those sheltered at home and others needing food.
