Food Pantry Ministry

Inspired by the words of the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 13:3-13, the Benevolence Ministry strives to be an arm of support to families experiencing difficult times in our communities. The main objective of this ministry is to provide needed moral and spiritual support as well as other forms of charity to the sick and shut-in members of GBBC. The second objective of this ministry is to provide outreach to the community of faith in the form of service and support through collaboration with other ministries and other like-organizations. The ministry also focuses on humanitarian initiatives that affect all communities.

The Commodities Food Program

The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is a Federal program that helps supplement the diets of low-income Americans, including elderly people, by providing them with emergency food and nutrition assistance at no cost. It provides food and administrative funds to States to supplement the diets of these groups. The program which is administered through Second Harvest Food Bank, provides food designed to supplement the nutritional needs of low income citizens who meet Federal Low Income guidelines. The food is distributed by the Green Bethel Baptist Church located at 120 Bethel Avenue in Boling Springs NC 28017. For more information please contact Jennie Poston at  704-434-6003.
