Greetings Fellow Foodies!
This week's numbers:
· # households served: 107
· # individuals served: 373
· # first-timers: 25
· # of volunteers: 17
3595 pounds of food received this week from all our various sources!
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. - Colossians 3:17
For whatever reason, our numbers continue to dwindle slightly each week from when we started our Covid related drive through process. Several years ago we wondered what would happen if we ever hit 100 families a week, now we are wondering why so few! As one of our volunteers commented, our current process is indeed a well-oiled machine thanks mostly to God for blessing this ministry with faithful and capable volunteers and friends who care deeply about the welfare of others. We could not continue otherwise! Thanks be to God!
