The phone call came on Thursday morning, May 28. When Garrison Chaffee, associate pastor, answered, a familiar voice said, “I have 1,400 pounds of fresh produce in 20-lbs. boxes available for pick-up next Tuesday. It’s free and I will deliver it. Could your church give some of these out to your community?” asked Keith Jacobson, senior pastor of the Sacramento Carmichael Seventh-day Adventist Church. His mission is for Adventist churches to help feed their communities. Jacobson has partnered with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for a source of fresh produce. His call was perfect timing. God works that way!
