Week 27 Bread House Report

This has been a very interesting week at the Bread House. We did not receive a shipment from Destin Harvest this week, which put us in a scare. As God always provides, we had donations come in from our fantastic congregation, and luckily, we made it to the end of the week.

On Saturday, we received a call from Larry. He received food from us when we worked out of an SUV in front of the FLC. By chance, he was working a food giveaway at the fairgrounds, and they had a bunch of food left over.  He asked if we wanted any of the food. The only problem was we had to pick it up, and I was in Milton. I called Jamie and Rendi Bonner, who jumped into action. They picked up 69 boxes of food, which is over 1 ton of food. They rushed back, and with Larry’s help, they unpacked the boxes, filled up the freezer, and all the refrigerators to include some in the FLC. With some food still left, they took boxes to the Shalimar apartments and gave out 52 bags of food. It was a great day! ~Pete Peters
