Upper Sand Mountain Parish

(Sylvania,AL)

Upper Sand Mountain Parish is a cooperative parish of the United Methodist Church. The Parish has been helping make Miracles on the Mountain possible for 40 years in 2009. We serve 1,000 square mile area of Sand Mountain in Jackson and Dekalb counties of Alabama. With local concerns of poverty abundant, we work to provide family care services to the community by offering a food pantry; utility, prescription, and medical assistance; and a clothing store gift certificate program. We have long worked with area farmers to provide a gleaning program of area fields to secure as much produce as possible. We operate a large scale industrial cannery during the summer where we can around 2,000 quarts of vegetable soup and make sauerkraut for our food pantry. One of the ways we support our ministries in the community is by the sale of our Alabama Green Tomato Products produced in our cannery. All products begin with green tomatoes which take the taste of what you add to them (ie. Green Tomato Blueberry Jam, Green Tomato Marmalade, Green Tomato Apple Jam, etc.). These exciting items make great gifts for family or friends who live outside the state or for anyone interested in home grown goodness.
