Great news! Beginning in August, Joy Kitchen will begin a new frozen meal ministry! We will operate out of the Lawrenceville Church of God on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month, cooking and packaging fresh quality meals to be frozen and distributed to clients of the SE Gwinnett Co-op in Grayson, as well as help the church meet their own benevolence needs. The food pantry meals are intended to supplement the foods that the pantry already gives out. They will be meat-intensive – chicken, ham, ground beef, etc. – with one side.
You can help!
One. Donate a new or used chest freezer to place in the Gwinnett Co-op. Used is fine but it must be in good working order.
Two. Donate a ham! We will gladly accept any fresh, unopened ham but the easiest to prepare for us is Castleberry’s Boneless Spiral-sliced Ham from Sam’s Club, in the gold bag. Drop hams off any Sat. we are open, between 11am-1pm (call 770 313 9842 first to make sure we are open)
Three. We need volunteers! People age 14 and up to portion the cooked foods into containers, seal, label and box them up.
Our first date of service will be August 9.
