Saints United Lutheran Church participates in three ministries: Aid for Friends, Feast of Justice, and Feed the Hungry
Aid for Friends
Aid for Friends was founded in 1974 by Rita Ungaro-Schiavone who was take back by the isolation and needs of these she met through her work at the Frankford YWCA. She began by bringing frozen home-cooked meals when visiting shut-in clients. Rita, realizing the greater need, began to enlist the aid of others until it has grown into an organization that now operates in 5 counties over a network of 200 churches, synagogues, and community meal centers.
Saints United Lutheran Church is proud to serve as part of this network by regularly cooking, freezing and delivering meals for elderly shut-ins. You can learn more about Aid for Friends by visiting their website at http://www.aidforfriends.org
Feast of Justice
Feast of Justice is a cooperative ministry consisting of the efforts of community churches, companies, and individuals. It operates out of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Northeast Philadelphia with a mission to support the community by transforming the lives of its residents.
Saints United Lutheran Church supports Feast of Justice by contributing canned goods and frozen turkeys as well as assisting with the delivering of meals to 900+ families in the community through out the course of the year.

Feed the Hungry
Feed the Hungry is a program in which Saints United Lutheran Church members gather to make casseroles and bagged sandwiches for the less fortunate in our community. We then take those to St. Mark’s on Frankford Ave and serve the meals to those in need.
