Food Bank

Food Bank Closed: December 20, 27 and January 3.
We will REOPEN: Jan. 10, 2020 4-6 pm.

What We Do

Our Food Bank has three teams of volunteers:

Registration

This team has the opportunity to create a first impression with our Food Bank friends who’ve never visited Grace before. We anticipate that this team will lead the way to create an atmosphere in which people feel welcome and loved.

Hospitality

This team focuses on making friends with all who visit our Food Bank by coming alongside them in 1-on-1 friendships. Many times, people in difficult financial situations need more than free groceries; they need someone to care about them, walk alongside them, listen to them, and pray for them.

Kitchen

This team handles our food supply. They’re integral in making sure that all our Food Bank friends receive food and are efficiently directed through the kitchen. They also oversee our food orders, donations, and deliveries. This team is the eyes and ears of our inventory and supply needs.

Why We Do It

  • We’re doing this to show you that God cares about people in need.
  • We’re a church full of needy people. All of us are sinners.
  • We’ve all broken God’s laws and deserve to be punished as His enemies.
  • Instead, God sent His only Son Jesus to die for our sins in our place.
  • God provided what we all need most: to be saved from our sins.
  • God is so merciful that He not only gives us salvation but also many other gifts like food.
  • So, we are doing this because God has shown us His mercy and we want to spread it around.

Grace Food Bank’s Vision

“To develop relationships with the people in our community through a food bank in order to meet their physical and spiritual needs.” 

Plan to join us on Thursdays from 1:00-4:00pm to set up and Fridays from 3:30-6:30pm to distribute food and share your heart. God uses this ministry to change the lives of those who attend as well as those who open themselves up to be used for His glory. Even an hour of your time on Friday will make a difference in someone’s life! Our food bank has grown in those we serve, and more hands are needed to make the load lighter for our volunteers.
