Norton Avenue First Baptist – Food Bank Ministry in Bristol, PA

Mom and I were privileged to visit the Food Bank on Tuesday morning this week.  The big boss, Miss Martha Miller (who we LOVE) allowed us to come and ask participants if they wanted to sign the petition to get President Obama on the ballot for Pennsylvania.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are so many programs through this great church and the associated mission of No Longer Bound.

As I learn more through my new relationships at this church and ministry, I will document with photos, video, and blog posts.

Their current website is http://nortonavenuebaptistchurch.bravehost.com, and they are working on a brand new blog and site.  They are allowing me to help and give input, so we will also announce that soon!

Many companies participate in the Food Bank programs in Bucks County.  The fresh produce comes from Philabundance, and that is the truck that everyone is waiting for here to be unloaded!  http://www.philabundance.org/

We appreciate Miss Martha and Pastor Evans, and are so happy to find small ways to help in our community.  They always need plastic grocery bags for people to use on their food pantry days.  If you have access to larger quantities of items to donate of food, let them know.  If you want to volunteer in some programs, or have used clothing appropriate for job interviews, that is always needed as well.  You can pass messages to me at sallykwitt@gmail.com and I will forward them to Miss Martha.

    Beautiful. Recently began visiting a church that I’ve respected for some time. A ministry was struck enough by them that they decided to join the church, rather than just joining hands. The church is now building a food pantry on their property and ‘tweaking’ the process, aiming at twice last year’s service stats. The unity of the Body is first and foremost and I appreciate that your ministry is rooted in that understanding. Yeah!!

    I support my local Food for People Food Bank. When our local Grocery Outlet Store has a particularly good bargain on a food item I will purchase many cases and take it to Food for People to give away to their clients. It’s the least I can do.

    food deserts that exist in many area.Keep up the good work!

    Wow so rewarding to be able to help like that. Very inspiring and something I am going to be doing more of in 2012.

    Great way to service your community!

    Bravo to you and your community for providing such essential services to the needy. Food banks here in CA are starving (pun intended) for donations, and can’t fill weekly needs. Keep fighting the good fight, Sally!

    I’ve been to a field trip to a food bank with the kids. I’m amazed at how little you can donate for a huge return in food produced from a food bank. Keep spreading the good news!
