Feed My Sheep Team raises the roof during “Canstruction” in Harrisburg and wins “Best Meal” category
Deacon Wanda Kloza of Shippensburg is the Deacon for diocesan-wide feeding programs and food-related justice issues in the Diocese of Central Pennsylvania. Wanda, working as a resource, has taken on the charge of teaching and assisting parishes who wish to begin or expand feeding programs in the diocese.
Wanda with the help of Michael Nailor, a student in the Stevenson School for Ministry, organized volunteers to help create a church out of cans for “Canstruction,” a competition that consists of the design and construction of sculptures made entirely of canned food items. Teams develop a design and construct the sculpture.
The purpose is to ensure that no Central Pennsylvanian goes hungry. All the canned food used to create the sculptures is donated to Project Share in Carlisle, Pa. Project Share then distributes the food to local food banks and pantries in the surrounding counties.
This year’s event took place at the Keystone Building located in Harrisburg.
The Feed My Sheep ministry is intended to connect parishes throughout the diocese in the ministry of feeding those in need by supplying resources and net-working opportunities. For more information to start a program in your parish or for additional resources and net-working opportunities, please contact Deacon Wanda.
