Redefining the Role of Missional Food Pantry.

The New Normal

In order to sustain a missional food pantry that serves close to 500 households per month, each of them receiving $250 worth of food, we need to replenish 6-8 pallets of food on a weekly basis.

To that purpose, every Tuesday from 4-7pm (except the 3rd Tuesday), Faith, Hope and Love, offers the community an opportunity to give back through our FHL Giving On Tuesday

As part of what makes us a missional food pantry, we also offer Drive-thru Prayer every Tuesday as well.  Please join us as we continue to redefine the role of a food pantry in a neighborhood.

The Aspects of a MISSIONAL Food Pantry

Devotions

Our FHL Drive-Thru Missional Food Pantry starts with devotions.  After the spiritual, then the physical demonstration of God’s love.  Every Saturday from 10 am to 11:30 am; one household per month is given boxes of food, one with fresh and the other nonperishable.

Households Served And Prayed For

The Drive-Thru pantry service continues with serving 35+ vehicles with 57 households.  As part of the missional outreach to each household, on a given Saturday there is an average of 17 salvations and 1 rededication.  Added on to the cars who receive food through the Drive-Thru, are those expanded volunteers’ outreaches ending with a total of 100 households provided.

How Our Outreaches End

At the end of each Saturday’s Drive-Thru missional food pantry, we offer the volunteers boxes of food to deliver on their way home to families in need and to offer prayers for the recipients as well.  One of the very first ever volunteers of Faith, Hope and Love community delivered food to a family in a trailer park west of Indy. She received this beautiful note from the family!

FHL Giving Tuesday Now – May 5, 2020

We are participating in #GivingTuesdayNow, to bring about greater awareness of food insecurity and get more involvement in our services through donations and volunteer support. FHL has participated in #GivingTuesday in the past years with success. Merlin Gonzales, President/CEO of FHL, “is very glad to be involved with the #GivingTuesdayNow program. Our aim is to generate more awareness and support for FHL and other similar organizations. The COVID-19 pandemic posed some challenges, but we are moving forward in spite of it anyway. The drive thru pantry is one way that exemplifies this forward momentum.” “As a global community, we can mourn this moment of extreme crisis while also finding the opportunity to support one another. We each have the power to make an impact with acts of generosity, no matter how small, and to ensure the sustainability of organizations and services that are crucial to the care and support of our communities,” said Asha Curran, CEO of GivingTuesday. “#GivingTuesdayNow is a chance for us to stand united and use grassroots generosity to show that we are all in this together, beginning to end. Even as many face financial uncertainty, generosity is not about size. From calling an elderly neighbor to chat to offering translation help; from showing gratitude to our healthcare workers to donating to your local food bank, every act of kindness is a beacon of hope in this crisis. We all have something to give, and every act of human consideration and kindness matters.” Those interested in Faith Hope Love Community’s #GivingTuesdayNow efforts can visit our website.  For more details about the GivingTuesday movement, visit the Giving Tuesday website (www.givingtuesday.org), Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/GivingTuesday) or follow @GivingTuesday and #GivingTuesdayNow on Twitter
