For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me. I was in prison and you came to visit me. (Matthew 25:35-36 NIV)

The Ford Baseball Team continues to help us sort product on the 3rd Sat. of each month.

This month saw an increase in the price of eggs, they more than doubled.
We continue to share produce with other food banks and the Senior Citizens Center in Quinlan, so we don't have to discard produce.
We depend on GOD and the generosity of members of this community to supply the needs of the families of this community. We have Donors who have committed to regular monthly donations.
We are still able to supply the larger families with extra products and will continue to do so as long as funds and donations permit us to.
I consider it an honor and privilege to serve this community and God: to Whom I give all the Glory for what He has done, is doing, and will do in my life. I ask for your prayers and help for this ministry of God to abound.
Thank You All Very Much.
Your Brother in Christ Jesus
