Believers Reaching Individuals for Christ's Kingdom
At The BRICK, we help the hungry in our communities. We provide an assortment of food items, both non-perishable and fresh, to families in need. They may visit The BRICK’s Food Shelf once a month, receiving three to five days’ worth of groceries. This is emergency, supplemental food, which The BRICK obtains from the Federal Emergency Food Assistance Program, Second Harvest Food Bank, Wal-Mart’s Feed America Program, and donations from area churches, community organizations, and individuals.
The BRICK provided food for an average of 658 households month. Now in its eighth year, the Food Shelf experienced a dramatic increase during recent years. As the effects of the current recession deepened in this area, with growing numbers of long-term unemployed residents, more families needed food assistance as well. During the year of 2012, volunteers and staff helped approximately 1500 people a month.
The BRICK now has four Food Shelf locations: Ashland, Cable, Cornucopia, and Mellen.
We help families, individuals, children, and the elderly. To register, please stop by any of the locations during office hours.
