" I was hungry, and you gave me food. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink....". Matthew 25:35 (NCV)
The food pantry has grown into a major community ministry of our church. We easily feed between 100-200 families each month. When we have a special food pantry in which 2nd Harvest Food Bank sends 15,000 lbs of food in one session, we may feed as many as 200+ families per session. We are not only interested in giving physical food to people, but also want to feed them spiritually. We conduct a church service before each food pantry and most of the people who attend love the service and consider it to be their own service. We give out food, regardless of attendance to the service, because everyone is welcome to come and receive food in the Name of Jesus who is our provider.
