Feeding the Multitudes Ministry
Food insecurity can affect child development negatively through undernutrition and micronutrient deficiencies such as those in iron and zinc. These nutritional deficiencies have been found to lead to adverse development of the brain and its functioning in children. This can result in poor cognitive functioning and physiological, behavioral, and emotional problems in children. Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior
You can have an impact on this growing concern in our neighborhoods by donating to the Feeding the Multitudes Ministries Team walking in the Cincinnati Hunger Walk on Memorial Day, May 29. Every penny you donate will be used to purchase food to feed hungry families.
Florence Christian Church has a reputation. This reputation has been forged from an almost 190 year commitment to being a “Servant Church” in our community. Serving as a hospital in the Civil War, acting as a good neighbor during Civil Rights unrest of the 1960s, providing a large community Thanksgiving meal and taking Vacation Bible School to local apartment neighborhoods to serving as an emergency cold shelter in 2019, we have a reputation in the northern Kentucky area as a church who extends care and compassion through service.
Free and Fresh Food Distribution
On the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month at 2:30 PM, Florence Christian Church hosts a collaborative food distribution for everyone. There are no income guidelines or proof of need required. Folks drive by the front doors and volunteers put fresh produce and shelf stable food items directly into their cars.
Food Aid – Action Ministries Community Food Ministry
In partnership with Action Ministries, this team provides a once a month delivery of food to residents at Arcadia Park Senior Center.
Care & Share Food Pantry
The Care & Share Pantry is supplemental food assistance available 24/7 located outdoors in the upper parking lot. Guests to the pantry are welcome to take as much as they need and leave an abundance they may have.
Every November Florence Christian Church offers our community a free meal with Turkey and all the trimmings! This is literally one of the ways Florence Christian Church celebrates God’s welcome table!
Christians for Critters
Christians for Critters is one way Florence Christian Church pays tribute to our four-legged friends. We collect food and other pet supplies for our Arcadia Park neighbors. We also sponsor a “Blessing of the Pets” service in our meditation garden every Fall.
