Mt. Pocono -- Area residents can help people of war-ravaged Africa by buying home-grown vegetables at Trinity Church in Mount Pocono.

"I've never been to Africa," said Hill. "Our bishop, Paul Marshall, visited Kajo Keji and I saw a slide show of his trip. It really underlined the hardships that people there have endured.
