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 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.
