Founded in 1890, Christ Episcopal Church is located in the heart of the Bishop Arts District in the North Oak Cliff area.
Undergoing gentrification, the neighborhood has wide economic disparities that include the challenges of homelessness, food insecurity, mental instability, and working poor.
For more than 8 years, volunteers at the parish have prepared sack lunches that are distributed to anyone in need in their program called “Lunch with Christ”. Last year, they provided over 3000 lunches for the hungry in this transforming neighborhood. They also organized a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for neighbors in need.
The Episcopal Foundation of Dallas is pleased to assist parishioners at Church of Christ as they serve those who find themselves living in poverty and hungry.
