Food Bridge

The Food Bridge is one of our church’s most powerful ministries which is housed in the Budington Building of Hope.  Many people know us in this community and we have gained quite a few new church members because of this ministry.


This ministry gives hope  and shares Christ’s Love to people in Northeast Florida.


Every weekday our refrigerated truck travels into Middleburg and Orange Park to pick up food provided by eight retail stores through our covenant with Feeding Northeast Florida.  

When the truck returns, many volunteers unload, weigh, sort and store the food items. We have a walk-in freezer and a walk-in refrigerator.


On Thursday mornings, we bag up and carry out food to the vehicles of the clients  (frozen meat, fresh produce, bread, dry goods, and dairy products).


The Food Distribution is from 730am-1030am on Thursdays. This is a Drive-thru only process. Clients are asked to remain in your vehicles. Clients must submit an application online and be approved before receiving food. New applications are no longer being accepted on Thursdays during the Food Distribution. Client ID cards are provided once your application is approved. Clients are responsible for keeping their Client ID and must bring it with them to each Food Distribution.

We are open to volunteers, every weekday from 6:30 AM to 10 AM and Thursdays until noon.

If you love to meet and help new people and share God’s love, consider the following opportunities: drivers, loaders, sorters, “pushers”, “hookers”, “bookies” etc. Answer God’s call and come and get involved in this ministry. 

 

God Needs You!
