As Thanksgiving approaches, we are preparing to feed those in need by hosting an event called the Feast of Hope on Thanksgiving Day! With the Feast of Hope, our mission is to help people in the Wilmington and surrounding areas to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal who would otherwise not experience one. Our goal is to feed 500 people and provide care packages for each of them. We have partnered with local agencies such as First Fruits Ministries, Good Shepard, Christian Recovery, and Safe Haven of Pender. We are still looking for cooks, baggers, and runners for the day of the event, as well as people to pack care packages, so you can sign up to help right here!
What is the purpose?
Our mission is to help feed the needy and homeless in the Wilmington, Pender and surrounding areas by being the hand and feet of Jesus Christ. Mark 10:45 NKJV says, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and give His life a ransom for many.”
What will each individual receive from the Feast of Hope?
Each individual will receive a Thanksgiving plate, dessert, care package, and a message of hope.
What will happen upon arrival for pick-up?
Individuals and/or groups will follow traffic directions upon arrival. Once it is your turn, you will pull-up and park. A host will greet you upon arrival. Please let the host know the number of plates needed. Larger groups should place orders prior to pick up, see form here Large Group Order Form. Large orders should be placed no later than 5 pm, Wednesday, November 25, 2020. The host will load items in your back seat. Please do not exit the vehicle. All volunteers will be following social distancing guidelines as well as all NC Dept. of Health and Human Services requirements.
If not driving, may I walk up to place an order?
