Food Bank Ministry

                         

  

Mission Statement:

Recognizing that God has blessed us to be a blessing, the Mays Grove Baptist Church Food Pantry serves as a vehicle to share the overwhelming abundance God has showered on us with those in need in our community. 

 

Vision/Purpose Statement:

The Mays Grove Baptist Church Food Pantry Ministry’s purpose is to assist those who need assistance as far as food is concerned in our community.  Emergency food is shared with love and respect to those who come for assistance.  It is our intention that they receive not only food for their physical hunger, but generous portions of kindness and grace to feed their spiritual and emotional hungers.  We believe the words of Jesus that this is one way we can respond directly to God's love for us: "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."  Matthew 25:35

Duties, Responsibility and Expectations:

Members of the Food Bank Ministry are expected to:

  • Be available to assist in unloading the food when it comes in on the Friday before the third Saturday of each month

  • Be available in the morning hours of operation to assist in sorting and compiling the food boxes for the community

  • Be available upon the director’s supervision to do whatever task that needs, to be done that may include carrying boxes to the cars, taking the inventory of participants’ names, addresses, etc.

  • Be responsible for ordering the food monthly (the director)

  • Be responsible for filing and keeping inventory for data collection purposes 9the director)

  • Be responsible for submitting required paperwork to the pastor and participating agencies that make this service available to the community.
