Young people in Central California are working hard to help feed elderly and families affected by COVID -19, one grocery box at a time.
Fight the Hate (FTH), a collaborative ministry of youth and young adults from Seventh-day Adventist churches across the Central California Conference, started sponsoring free grocery drive-thru’s for people living in Santa Clara County in the spring of 2020.
“The fallout from the Corona virus has impacted the lives of families in our communities in immeasurable ways,” FTH shared on social media.
In response to the great needs around them, FTH created a collaborative initiative with five Bay Area churches to release and raise funds to provide the grocery drive-thru for people in their churches and communities. The grocery boxes include produce, dairy, rice, potatoes, bread, and are distributed on a first come, first serve basis at the Sunnyvale, Campbell, and Milpitas SDA churches.
Thus far, over 45,000 bags and boxes of free groceries have been distributed, and an estimated 180,000 people across six Bay Area cities have been served since the beginning of the pandemic.
