What is a Food Bank?
A food bank is generally defined as a non-profit organization which solicits, purchases, inventories, and warehouses donated food and other procucts. The most common items procured are non-perishable. This food is then distributed to a variety of community agencies such as pantries, shelters, and meal sites which serve the people in need.
The major focus of food banks is not to provide food directly to individuals in need. Instead, food banks provide food to non-profit organizations such as church food pantries, in their service area that, in turn, provide foodfor an individuals short-term need basis.
Food banks receive food in many differeent ways.
Some examples are:
- Business and church food drives
- Individual food donations
- Bulk purchases from your financial support
- Grocery store product reclamation
- Corporate reclamation and redistribution centers

I LOVE THEE BEST
Written October 21st, 1977
At Christ Church in Los Angeles, California
By Jan B. Mathew
Thy praises sing I from a heart
That’s full of love for Thee…
For Thou hast answered ev’ry prayer
And put Thyself in me…
And yet Thou givest still
And answerest and answerest
And all my needs fulfill…
How sweet Thy tender touch alights
Upon my soul each day…
How sure Thy leading, guiding hand
Illuminates my way!
How much I love Thee, Jesus…
I could have never guessed
That I would come to such a place
To say… I love Thee best!
Remembering Jan Mathew
Jan Mathew, a volunteer at The King’s Storehouse, went home to be with The Lord on February 2, 2017. She faithfully volunteered every Monday for about 12 years. She was a very generous person and always tried to help others. She was a poet and an artist. Jan loved The Lord and below is one of her poems that expresses this love. Her smiling face will be greatly missed.
