MGC Food Bank

Who we are:

The MGC Food Bank is a licensed distributor of canned foods and nonperishables to needy families in our community. Our food is donated by the California Emergency Foodlink and by individual members of Missionary Gospel Church. Food is sorted, packaged and distributed by volunteers from Missionary Gospel Church and others.

Our mission:

Our slogan is “An empty stomach has no ears.” By satisfying the physical needs of the poor and hungry, we believe it opens people’s hearts to also receive the spiritual food of the Word of God.

What we do:

The MGC Food Bank provides food and other essentials for distribution to needy families through apartment outreaches, apartment food distribution days and individual home visits. For this to happen, volunteers first have to pick up donated food, sort it and package it into individual bags. If there is not enough donated food, food is purchased and then sorted and packaged.

We are directly connected with Apartment Outreach Ministry.

How you can get involved:

Everyone is welcome to participate in sorting and packaging the food. The more the merrier, so bring your kids and teens! This is a great way to serve with the entire family. If you have a truck or van, please volunteer to pick up and distribute the food. We always need help in this area. If you would like to donate food to the MGC Food Bank, please add your canned foods and nonperishables to the donation box in the vestibule at Missionary Gospel Church.

 

How you can pray for us:

  1. Pray that the resources we currently use to collect food remain open.
  2. Please thank God for the staff at California Emergency Foodlink for all their help and hard work.
  3. Pray for the people who will be receiving the food to understand that they need food for their physical bodies and for their souls. Pray that people would open their hearts to the Gospel through this ministry.
  4. Pray for willing volunteers to help with transportation, sorting, packaging and distributing the food to those who need it most.

           

How you can financially support us:

To cover the cost of food and packaging supplies, please make checks payable to “Missionary Gospel Church” with “MGC Food Bank” in the memo field. Or, give cash donations to David Mazur or Peter Smolin and you will receive a cash receipt.
