Community Partnership Helps Feed Those Most in Need
The power of community partnership has been on full display at Greater Grace Church since uniting with Operation Food Search and Christian Hospital to provide food on a regular basis since September 2020 to more than 15,000 families.
The weekly drive through food distribution of boxed fresh fruit and vegetables on the Greater Grace Church parking lot (3690 Pershall Rd., 63135) each Friday at 2:30 p.m. until food is gone will continue through July, except on June 18 there will be no distribution to commemorate Juneteenth Day.
“The partnership of Christian Hospital, Greater Grace Church and Operation Food Search shows that we can be much more effective working together to make the community itself stronger,” says Bishop Larry Jones of Greater Grace Church. “Partnering like this allows us to offer resources that we can’t do alone.”
“Connecting organizations together to form partnerships like this are essential to Christian Hospital as we work together in fulfilling our mission and vision to improve the health and overall wellbeing of the community we serve,” notes Christian Hospital President Rick Stevens.
“We are grateful for our friends at Greater Grace Church and Christian Hospital who are helping us put food on the tables of our community members, particularly during these challenging times,” states Operation Food Search President & CEO Kristen Wild.
