Baptist Children’s Homes 2017 Food RoundUp

Metrolina Baptist Association is a collection point at 1324 The Plaza, Charlotte, NC 28205.  We will begin accepting food donations on March 1st and will continue through May 15th.  Contact missions@metrolina.org or call us at (704) 375-1197 to schedule your food donation drop-off.

The annual “Food Roundup” has successfully united churches, businesses, and other friends to collect much needed food, supplies and gift cards for Baptist Children’s Homes’ boys and girls. When you are feeding cottages that can have as many as 12 to 16 residents, it takes a lot of food to fill hungry bellies.

BCH serves as many as 700,000 meals and snacks throughout the year! Consider that BCH operates care locations in 20 North Carolina communities and you can imagine how much it costs to feed so many. The Food Roundup  makes it all possible!  For a list of 2017 Food Supply Needs, click here.

For more information about how you, your church or organization can be a part of Food Roundup, contact Alan Williams at 1-800-476-3669 ext. 1277 or email him at awilliams@bchfamily.org.

FINAL FOOD TRUCK FRIDAY OUTRTEACHFood Truck Friday Outreach

Our new location at the Great Commission Center is providing us with some amazing opportunities to connect with neighbors, build relationships, and make disciples. One of those ways is through Food Truck Fridays–a weekly event next door to us! We were first aware of this event in April 2016.  Since then, we have blocked off our parking lot so that people getting food would have a place to sit down, visit, and eat. By putting out chairs and trash cans, we have a place to connect with these neighbors from around the city who come for food on a Friday night.

Food Tuck Fridays will begin weekly on March 17, 2017, and will continue through the end of October.  We would like to schedule volunteers to staff our Food Truck Friday outreach next door to the Great Commission Center!  We’re looking for outreach people and/or teams who will commit to coming on a Friday (5:30 pm-9:30 pm) to put out chairs, talk with folks who sit in our lot to enjoy the food, and watch for opportunities to have Gospel conversations with those who come our way. 

Please contact us if your church is willing to take a Friday evening this season to be on-site at 1324 The Plaza, serving as hosts to those who come.  Groups of 2-6 volunteers is recommended.  Call us at (704) 375-1197 or email missions@metrolina.org to schedule your Friday night.
