MFB Pennsylvania partner feeding body, mind, and spirit
The church ministers to a largely rural area in Adams County, Pennsylvania, providing a well-balanced variety of food groups and volunteers offering prayer and invitations. Recently a gentleman came to get food, and volunteers extended an invitation to Sunday services. The man came to church the next day and accepted Jesus Christ.
"At Midwest Food Bank, we are different because we are independent, allowing us and our partners to express our faith freely," says Kathy Anderson-Martin, Executive Director of MFB Pennsylvania. "It is important to minister to the needs of the body, mind, and spirit."
With inflation and reduced government assistance, Gettysburg Baptist Church has experienced an increase in people accessing its food pantry. The pantry receives food, without charge, from MFB Pennsylvania.
Clients drive through to receive food, and volunteers offer invitations and information about their church. They have heard many stories and prayed with and for many people that are experiencing a crisis in their life. It takes about 20-30 volunteers for each food drive event, and they move two cars through at a time. They also have a team that directs traffic and monitor for safety. Church volunteers say the partnership with MFB allows them to facilitate this outreach in their community.
