New ‘Blessing Box’ Offers Food To Those In Need In Flomaton, Century

March 18, 2019

A new community project is lending a help hand to anyone in need of food  in the Century and Flomaton area.

A “Blessing Box” filled with non-perishable food was installed Saturday in downtown Flomaton.

“We wanted to do something to help people in our community who need a little extra help putting food on the table. This box is also a way that those same people can give back when they are able,” said Pastor Ricky Hart of Vision Church in Flomaton.

Anyone that needs a little extra help  can take food from the box, and anyone is welcome to restock it.

“Jesus commands us to be His hands and feet and this is a small way we can do just that,” Hart said.

The Blessing Box is located near Church Street in Flomaton. It’s located behind the community stage (the public library side of the stage), just west of the Church and Palafox intersection.

    Nice to see a church being the hands and feet of Christ, not just pointing a finger at the needy.
