Family Connections will use the money to continue its ministry of providing food (staples, as well as meat, fresh vegetables and fruit) to food-insecure families with school age children in Benton County, Tennessee. The ministry is a partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank of West Tennessee.
“This program is not just striving to provide food, but to establish a relationship with each family through prayer, support and encouragement,” according to Martha Holifield, administrative assistant at the church.
