About Our Hunger Program

pageimage_programs_hungerWe offer plentiful programs to combat hunger in our community:

  • A community cupboard, which provides families with emergency, supplemental food every month.
  • Two state-run, income-specific programs for individuals and seniors.
  • Through our various programs, we serve on average 250 families per week, and distribute over 8,000 pounds of food.
  • Feast Day is a monthly lunch, where guests enjoy a hot and hearty meal and share in a time of fellowship.  Various community resources and speakers are there to educate and provide assistance.  3rd Tuesday; opens at 9:30, meal at 12:00pm.
  • Feast Night is a community dinner where guests enjoy a hot served meal and community fellowship.  Worship follows sponsored by St John’s.  2nd and 4th Thursday nights.  Doors open at 6:00; dinner follows at 6:30.
  • At Thanksgiving and Christmas, we provide special food baskets with a turkey and all the trimmings. Guests must be registered with FoJ to receive.
  • At Christmas children are given a gift and winter clothing.
