OUR MISSION

SERV Food Local is a local outreach ministry of SERV International. We use fresh food as a platform to share God's love. It all starts with FOOD, and leads to so much more.

 
 
 

THE IMPACT

Every box of food provides nutritious meals for a family of 4 for an entire week.

It’s #MORETHANFOOD

JULIA'S STORY

Julia is a mom of 5 living in downtown Canton, GA. Her husband is abusive. She struggles to provide for her children, and she has fought suicide for herself and her daughter. Her in-laws now live with her and have brought with them more brokenness than Julia knows how to handle. This new addition to their household has left her family in pieces. Julia spoke of these unfortunate truths with huge tears pouring down her face.

By providing Julia with a SERV Food Local box each month, it brings a smile to her face and hope for the day. This box is full of fresh fruits and vegetables that her family would not receive otherwise.

It is more than food. It is a smile.

ANNA'S STORY

Anna is a mother to 3 young children. She has severe trauma from her childhood - her dad sold her to be married to a man at age 12, forcing her to become a woman at a very young age. She came to the US where her children could receive an education and have a better life than she did.

Fast forward to today where she can’t afford child care and needs to work to provide for her family. In order for Anna to keep her kids from being taken by DFCS, she has to have food on the table.

It is so much more than food. It is keeping families together.

 

WHY IT'S MORE THAN FOOD TO OUR VOLUNTEERS

"These food boxes have brought the community together and have started conversations about missions in the local community as well as overseas missions. They have given me the opportunity to help families that wouldn’t ask for help. The conversations, the hugs, the sparkle in a person’s eye knowing they are going to be able to feed their family, and the conversations we’ve had as a family about why we serve, and why we pack food boxes and how Jesus has equipped us to be his hands and feet - this is what it’s all about!”
