Families Helping Families (FHF) is a ministry of Eastside Baptist Church, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, that distributes food and household items weekly to approximately 75 households who are in need in our local and surrounding communities.
FHF also distributes items weekly to 20 Partner Agencies.
To fulfill the Lord’s commandment to take care of the hungry and afflicted. FHF strives to eliminate hunger and food insecurities by providing the surrounding communities with food, promoting the value of nutrition, increasing self-sufficiency and instilling the hope and love of Christ in them.
Our vision is to expand our offerings to further our efforts in eliminating hunger in our community, while sharing the love and message of hope in Christ Jesus.
The Families Helping Families Food Pantry started in July of 2013, as an outreach ministry of Eastside Baptist Church. For the first year and half, FHF handed out food on an occasional basis. In April 2015, FHF began weekly distribution and it’s grown immensely since then. FHF is now helping to feed hundreds of individuals and families each month along with providing for other agencies out of our abundance.
In 2015 FHF served 2,188 clients. So far in 2016 we have already exceeded that number.
