To God Be The Glory
Food Ministries' Website
To God Be The Glory services about 150 families, five churches and about five other food banks. “And, we are the only ministry to receive meats — everything from hot dogs to filet mignon," says Jim Billups, of To God Be The Glory Food Ministry. He collects about 10 boxes of meat a week to help feed the hungry in addition to a van load of other items such as baked goods, and fruits and vegetables. Some of the boxes of meats he collects are retail valued at over $1000.
So in effect the ‘wasted’ supermarket foods are not wasted at all. “The biggest thrill I have is every Friday at Tymor Park the senior citizens come with their shopping bags. They love it.” Billups said it is a blessing that he can deliver these goods to them. “I can relate to what they are going through.”
President of the senior’s group that meets at Tymor, Eleanor Voigt, said, “The seniors just love it. They are thrilled to pieces.” Voigt stated that although the seniors receive the food for free, they do make donations each and every week to the food pantry. Voigt said she is very happy and pleased to have Jim visit each week. “Jim has been very nice to us.”
Another member of the senior’s group is Gloria Meier. She said, “The seniors appreciate Jim bringing the food to them every Friday.” They enjoy picking out the different baked goods and other selections. “Some pick up food for others in need as well.” Gloria added, “It’s very nice of Jim to do this” as a volunteer.
Living on a fixed income is not easy these days – and with a recession in place so many families are without the traditional ‘bread winner’. But at least many can take advantage of the free food from To God Be the Glory Ministries. “There is no prerequisite,” said Billups. “If you need food, it’s there.”
