Mechanicsville Churches Emergency Functions (MCEF)
Mechanicsville Churches Emergency Functions, known locally as MCEF, has served the Mechanicsville area for more than 40 years. The organization pulls together resources provided by more than 30 churches and members of the community at large to serve people in Hanover County who are in need. MCEF operates a "One-Stop Shop" -- located at 7235 Stonewall Parkway, at the rear of the building, next to the Hanover Adult Center -- with clothes, linens and housewares; a food pantry; and, assistance for people needing help with financial concerns in emergency situations.
MCEF provides food, nutrition classes, and clothing to many families whose children attend Mechanicsville Elementary School; 53% of its student population uses the Free and Reduced Breakfast/Lunch program offered to them. MCEF also partners with other institutions in a backpack ministry, which provides backpacks with food to take home for the weekend to students who meet the low-income criteria.
