Pastor Lisa Williams

I am Lisa Williams the pastor serving San Pedro United Methodist Church. I am also an advocate for our unhoused neighbors working closely with Council District 15 and the San Pedro Chamber of Commerce. In 2019 I was Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn’s Woman of the Year.We were gifted a half-acre of land years ago. We are living out our values by partnering with 1010 Development to build 54 units of affordable and permanent supportive housing.We began looking around our facility to see how our assets could alien with the needs of our community. According to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank – 1 out of every 4 people in LA Country experience food insecurity. This can create great health challenges, especially those with diabetes and hypertension. During this pandemic many have found themselves at a food pantry for the first time, not knowing how to create healthy meals with the food given. That is why we have begun a campaign to revitalize our Kitchen creating an Educational Initiative. This initiative will provide education to low-income families on the importance of healthy eating. We are partnering with Harbor Community Health Center they will conduct diabetes training and our local restaurants will provide virtual cooking lessons. Toberman Neighborhood Center will be our distribution partner where families will pick up food that will be used during the cooking class.In addition to our Hope on 6th building project we are expanding our partnership with Family Promise of the South Bay to create respite housing for up to four families.Being good stewards of our property and building strong community is how we are living into the future. To upgrade our kitchen and implement our cooking classes we need to raise $200,000. When our bodies are healthy so are our minds and souls. Partner with us to help families have a chance of creating healthy meals.I am Lisa Williams the pastor serving San Pedro United Methodist Church.
