For the past year we have told everyone “we are not a foodbank!”. However, the more and more we heard about the need… God put it in our heart that we needed to be one. We did not pursue it, Feeding America came to us!
On February 26th, 2018 we started a foodbank out of the location that Triumphant Life Ministries is remodeling for ministry. Why a Foodbank? Well, a food pantry is open periodically to help families with donated food. When Feeding America approached us, they told us they did not have a pantry in Preble County, knew there was a need and would give us all the food we needed. Just “treat everyone the same”. So, we did.
Our first week we served 21 families and did not even advertise being open. Our volume has been a 25 to 50% growth week over week! As of the middle of April, we are distributing over 3,000 lbs of food and have served over 360 households! We are convinced there is a need.
