Our Church hands out food normally once to twice a month. But we also hand out any time some comes by or calls for help. We have been helping in the community for over 12-13 years. We get our food that we hand out as donations and thought Feed America First. Our families are low income ranging from single family units to families that have up to 8 people in home. They are Young families and older people. We also have several handicaps. Are average is app. 50-75 families. We are a very small church, but we have a large food ministry. We hand out the food for free, but we do take a donation if they want and are able to help us to pay for the food we get from Feed America. but it isn't required.
We normally hand out to a large group of our people between the 4th to the 10th of the month. I work out my hand out dates and time with my normal job. and the hours vary. depending on my schedule at work. I always call or message my people a few days before the date to make sure they remember and are coming to pick up food. Winter is always worked around weather, holidays and my work. That is why I said I need someone to call me and I can work it out and I can meet someone or have someone else be there.
We are a small sandy brown brick church with white Cross and we have a sign in the front yard with Henderson Church of God on it. We are located on the corner of Sand Ave and Hwy. 45 North. In-between the West TN Bank and Jeff Teague 45 Auto Sales.
Please leave on door step and call me at 731-435-4725 so I'll know it's there.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
