After ten days of being down due to a virus, Bill Welsch made deliveries this week (April 13th through 17th) to several food distribution points. One of those spots is New Victory Baptist Church in Jonesborough, TN. The staff at the help center, pictured above) are always delighted to see Bill and come out to help him unload the truck. Fifty boxes of potatoes (750 pounds), pintos (100 pounds) and stoneground cornmeal (100 pounds) are delivered there once a month to this group who provide food to many hungry families in the Eastern Tennessee Mountains. We are thankful for all the volunteers who help us with various aspects of packing loading, or unloading. Sharon's mother and daddy, Eloise and Glenn Howell have been coming once a month since January 2015 to help with packing the boxes. We don't know what we would do without them!
We are also thankful for the many faces we are blessed to see when we make deliveries. Here is one of the volunteers at FARM (Feeding Aging Residents of Madison), a program that we developed that helps provide food to veterans and other senior adults in Madison County.
If you would like to learn more or if you would like to help, we welcome volunteers! The Lord's Harvest is a non-profit organization that is run solely by financial contributions. We are thankful for those who give so that our neighbors who are hungry can receive physical and spiritual food1
