Spreading the love of God one food box at a time
In 2009, what was then, Lynchburg First Church of the Nazarene, saw a need and decided to collect food to give to hungry families in Lynchburg. 300 families were served that first Christmas. With your help, we are aiming to serve over 1,000 families this Christmas. That’s how we can spread joy.
Each year, we collect food to go in each food box along with monetary donations to cover the cost of any food we have to purchase. It’s your generosity that drives this effort.
Purchase and Donate Food Items
Food items can be brought in to Compassion Church of the Nazarene during the week. These are the items needed:
- Canned Peas
- Baked Beans
- Canned Pineapple
- Cranberry Sauce
- Green Beans
- Instant Potato Mix
- Stuffing Mix
- Dessert Mix
- Bread/Muffin Mix

Every year we will end up purchasing outstanding food items. Any monetary donation will help reach the goal of feeding 100 families.
