Bridging the Gap
A recent report published by Mayor Mike Rawlings hows that from 2000 to 2012, the number of poor people in dallas rose by 41 percent. It also shows that Dallas has the highest child poverty rate among cities larger than 1 million people.
At Fellowship, we allocate 100% of our food ministry resources to the Bridging the Gap (BTG) intitiative. In a nutshell, BTG is a food pantry on wheels. Instead of having community members come to our location for food, BTG coordinates our congregation to deliver food to neighborhood families with food needs.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
1. BLESSING BAG FILLER: Volunteer to bring food from a specified food list once or twice a month. Download the food list here and bring it back to the church on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month.
2. BECOME A DELIVERER: Deliver bags of food (provided) to a needy family twice-a-month for six months. This can be done as a family, a community group, or a group of friends!
