BUUFers prepare and serve lunch at the Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen.
Berrien UU Fellowship serves lunch at the Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen the first Saturday of every even-numbered month (February, April, June, August, October and December). Berrien UU volunteers prepare the meal, greet guests and help clean up the kitchen. This is a terrific opportunity to serve the greater community, support our Social Justice mission and enjoy the company of fellow BUUFers and guests at the kitchen. Rev. Jim McConnell generously leads the group in planning the meal and dessert and he will gladly find a role for all volunteers, whether they’ve helped dozens of times or this is their first time. Please consider coming to the Soup Kitchen to help, even if it’s only for an hour or two.
The Soup Kitchen is located at 233 Michigan Street in Benton Harbor.

If joining the meeting, please bring a vegetarian or vegan entree, dessert or salad to serve 6-8 people and your own beverage. Current Covid restrictions at that time will be followed.

KISS THE GROUND (2020) is this month’s film. Activists, scientists, farmers and politicians turn to regenerative agriculture to save the planet’s topsoil. The film is 74 minutes, and after we watch it, we’ll discuss what actions we can take on this and other environmental justice issues.
