We have used Love United Iredell funds to support our mobile grill ministry. G4G is unique because instead of people coming to us for food, we meet them where they are. At each event, G4G brings the community together. We partner with other nonprofits and government departments within a 5 mile radius of the event site. In an average event, G4G serves 350 hungry people. The impact is far greater than filling their empty stomachs. Through food, G4G connects individuals with the community as a whole. We work in partnership with health fairs, local churches, community food banks, clothing ministries, the Housing Authority and others. These events connect the community through food, prayer, care and hospitality.
G4G is equipped to cook and serve everything on the go so we can provide delicious meals at no cost to the homeless, low-income families, children and those in need. G4G provides meals on Saturdays due to the gap between regular feeding programs (such as public school feeding programs). G4G events are held in communities where the average family income is less than $ 26,000 per year and, on many occasions, the income is much lower. G4G offers meals that include 1/4 chicken, beans, coleslaw, bun, dessert and plastic items.
G4G’s goal in 2021 is to feed 8,750 people at 25 events and provide 2,125 volunteer hours on site. G4G not only wants to provide nourishing food, but we also want to fill people with good food and hope that they will last long after the food is gone.
