Food pantry feeds families, changes lives
Ministry hoping to help those in need
The Good Samaritan Food Bank at the Chattahoochee Baptist Association is operating under new hours on Monday to accommodate working families.
A small group of people quietly slipped inside the door of the warehouse and waited in line next to shelves of bread Monday evening. Alvin Bagwell, director of the Good Samaritan Food and Furniture Bank on McEver Road, welcomed the people and led them in prayer before volunteers began passing out the day’s food. The food bank is a ministry of the Chattahoochee Baptist Association in partnership with the Feeding America program and is located behind its office in Gainesville.
