Today’s video on Thursdays at 2: New Ministries: Hope Sandwich Co.

Office of Public Affairs

On Thursday, February 22, Thursdays at 2, a favorite and popular feature produced by the Office of Communications, presents New Ministries: Hope Sandwich Co., a ministry of St. John’s Episcopal Church in San Bernardino, CA (Diocese of Los Angeles).

Hope Sandwich Co. is a social enterprise in the form of a food truck. For every meal sold, another is provided to a person in need in San Bernardino. This is accomplished through partnerships with Lutheran City Mission and the local food bank. In 2016, St. John’s received a $100,000 New Church Plant grant from the Episcopal Church to start this ministry.

New Ministries: Hope Sandwich Co. video is available here.   

Learn more about missional initiatives of the Episcopal Church here.

Thursdays at 2 is a weekly preview of Episcopal Church innovative ministries. Every Thursday at 2 pm Eastern, a new video illustrating the work of congregations and individuals will be posted on the Episcopal Church’s Facebook page here and YouTube Channel here.

Produced by the Episcopal Church Office of Communications, for more information contact Mike Collins, Episcopal Church Manager of Multimedia.
