On Tuesday, November 23, 2010 several members of Crooked Creek Baptist met to discuss the increasing requests for food assistance from our local community. During this discussion, the member developed the following proposal:
Morning Manna- Crooked Creek Baptist would begin in January of 2010 a three month exercise offering brunch on January 15, February 19, and March 19 from 9:30-11:00 a.m. These meals would be free of charge and open to the general public, with specific emphases being shared with the local elementary school and apartment housing in our immediate area.
Manna on the Move- in addition to being served a brunch every person would also be able to bring home a take home bag filled with enough food to feed one person for the rest of the day. This offering would also be at no cost to recipients.
Those in attendance immediately volunteered to work together, and accept anyone else, who wished to help serve our community in this meal service. It is our hope that through this offering, we might be able to demonstrate God's love to those who might visit us for this meal and help them stretch their already tightened budget.
