About Faith Food Fridays

Location:

826 SOLANO AVE, VALLEJO, CA 94590, US

Mission Statement

The mission of Faith Food Fridays is to provide encouragement to people struggling economically with bi-weekly distributions of free food, groceries, and other necessities; and through positive feedback, resource referrals and offers of prayer. An outreach ministry of Faith Bible Church of Vallejo, Faith Food Fridays believes our biblically-directed responsibility is to feed the poor, encourage with Godly love and enable our neighbors to increasingly contribute positively toward their community.

Description

Since June 24, 2011, Faith Food Fridays has provided Vallejo area families and individuals who struggle to provide food for their families with emergency food and groceries every week.

Each week, we serve an average of more than 250 families with food boxes that include fresh fruits and vegetables, meat or protein, bread, and dairy products. In addition, we’ve recently expanded to offer clothing, household items, and personal care items. Yet most importantly, Faith Food Fridays offers hope to the community - through positive encouragement, social service referrals and offers of individual prayer.

Faith Food Fridays partners with the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, Faith Bible Church of Vallejo, and many volunteers who enjoy giving back to their community.

This year, Faith Food Fridays anticipates serving more than 30,000 families representing more than 75,000 individuals. We need your help to do this and your support is vital to this mission.
