As of November 2023, over 48,000 meals have been provided to those in need!
The mission of Church by the Bay’s Feeding Ministry is to address the needs of God’s people with agape love where they are at.
Matthew 25:31-36 “For I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink…”
The vision of the Feeding Ministry is to feed the multitude every Saturday morning between 10:30-11:00 a.m.
If you are interested in donating meals, volunteers are asked to bring their meals to the Church by the Bay parking lot, every Saturday by 10:45 a.m.
Volunteers distribute meals to veterans and seniors in need. Home-cooked meals, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and more are taken to Veterans Haven in Winslow. We also donate to local senior citizens to supplement their meals for the month.
In the event of a holiday or mission Saturday, notice will be given through church announcements at least one week in advance of time and/or date change.
We are currently in need of volunteers for these areas:
- keep count of meals distributed
- answer questions regarding changes to time or dates
- check the church kitchen prior to the arrival of workers
- check refrigerator for any prepared meals that may have been put there
- check the freezer for any possible meals that may have been donated
- check the table for any dry goods that have donated
Donations can be made in a number of ways. If you are not able to provide meals, please consider making a monetary donation here.
More About Meals:
From oatmeal with fruit and PB&J sandwiches to homemade meals featuring meat, vegetables, carbohydrates, and dessert, our meal options are diverse and welcoming. We do not turn away or waste any meals, no matter how small they may be. Meals do not have to be hot upon delivery, as cold meals that can be reheated in the microwave are preferred, while bagged sandwich meals are also acceptable. Volunteers are not restricted by dietary requirements and can provide meals that are vegetarian, include pork, seafood, or any other option they would eat themselves. Every meal, regardless of its size, is appreciated and valued equally. Donating one meal is just as meaningful as donating 500.
