Description: We will again partner with the organization Harvest of Hope to learn about the issue of hunger and how we are called to assist our neighbors in need. This time we’re going to Exmore, VA on the Eastern Shore. We will work in the fields together to harvest seasonal vegetables to donate to local food banks. What we harvest will likely be on the dinner table within 24 hours. We will work hard and play hard…before we head home we will enjoy some recreation time together at the beach!
