Last week, Christians around the world observed Holy Week and Easter, commemorating the days of Jesus Christ — his return to Jerusalem, his crucifixion and his resurrection. The Fairfield Community Food Bank is so blessed to have local churches in Fairfield County bring honor to God while doing His work. We would like to thank First United Methodist Church and the other churches in our community that collected food and money during Holy Week. Distribution of the food has already begun and the financial donations have already been used to replenish the shelves. We would like to thank First United Methodist Church for hosting and collecting for the food bank at their church.
The Fairfield Community Food Bank began in 1986 as a mission associated with First Baptist Church, helping those in crisis with their emergent food needs. At that time, only a few families sought assistance each month, but in the last 26 years, the need has grown. The food bank is now at its third location, serving approximately 40 families per week.
The success of our mission, through this much-needed emergency food bank, is made possible only because of your contributions, support and involvement.
Again, thank you to everyone involved for their continued support in this much needed mission!
Prov. 22:9 — Happy is the generous man, the one who feeds the poor.
