FHLTransform Lives: From Contests to Missional Food Pantries
In the greatest country in the world, people are still hungry for both food and relationship. In addition, the effects of the Pandemic cut through our spirit, our emotions, socially and spiritually. What is the answer? Watch Faith, Hope and Love’s newest film, Beyond Bags of Food, for the answer.
The FHL Drive-thru MFP is Open on 11/14, 10 – 11:30 am.
Faith Hope and Love has been redefining the deeper role of food pantries in a neighborhood. Watch our first promotional to see how giving away food alone may not enough. And check back to see new videos each week.
Interns from the University of Indianapolis at the FHL office working on “community assessment” to determine strengths and weaknesses of our clients in the Castleton area. Our purpose? To plan nursing interventions to help the community. These interns have been involved in interviewing the local residents and businesses who have been served at the FHL Drive-Thru Missional Food Pantry, making phone interviews and performing online research.

FHLOn Being Missional: Performing Community Assessment
What is an FHL Space? FHL Community has been praying for the right timing to launch a regular gathering of people who want to establish closer relationships with volunteers, recipients and partners. This community gathering is all about living our lives based on Kingdom principles. Our first step is to identify conveners who are people persons and willing to learn how to gather groups and about God.

FHLCreating Missional Community: What is an FHL Space?
As a missional food pantry training organization, we regularly measure our effectiveness to find ways to serve our community better. One way is through follow up calls with our clients, engaging them in conversation about the effect on their lives after receiving God’s provision and protection through our FHL Missional Food Pantry Drive-Thru.
With the help of University of Indianapolis interns calling our Missional Food Pantry clients and asking quality control questions, we learned that a big percentage of the recipients loved the prayer portion of the Missional Food Pantry Drive Through outreach. WATCH!

FHLServing Our Community Better: FHL Missional Food Pantry Follow up with Clients
Operating a missional food pantry is more than just giving away groceries during pantry days. It also involves receiving and organizing donations during non-pantry days. I involves finding and organizing volunteers. The entire family can volunteer together as a part of deepening their relationships with each other and to learn and minister together. It’s another practical way to instill the value of serving unconditionally. Businesses can also send their employees to encourage community involvement and for a practical team-building.

FHLMore Than Just Giving Away Groceries: FHL MFP Drive-Thru Operations.
Today we look at two of the steps in preparing for the operations of Missional Food Pantry: Area assessment and food acquisition and loadout. Test
Area Assessment: Serving the needs of the clients and looking for partners
Currently, FHL has 3 teams of interns from the University of Indianapolis in the process of redefining the deeper role of a food pantry in a community. Tuesday, Sept 15th, Team A’s assignment was to learn about the life along 82nd St in order to identify the needs and the resources available. This is an important step in creating a “Missional Community”
Loadout of Food Pantry Provisions
Friday’s are often a load out day for the FHL Drive-Thru Missional Food Pantry. It’s always a busy day preparing for a Saturday Food Pantry. This past Friday loadout, Sept 11 FHL was helped by several partners which we wish to thank:BroadRippleHVAC, PenskeTruck, MidwestFoodbank, SecondHelpings, FearlessKitchens
