Each month the Erna Baker Clothing and Food Ministry with the aid of a small host of committed volunteers organize and distribute 680 bags filled with can goods, bread, pasta, pastries and meat. Periodically, Antioch blesses the community with gift cards from HEB. If members of the community want to register to vote we have certified deputy voter registrars on site. While COVID 19 forced us to change our methods for food distribution our commitment to the community never waivered. Members of the community are now able to drive up, pop their trunks, and drive off. We have taken every precaution to ensure the safety of our volunteers and our community members by providing cloth masks and face shields to all who need. For over 35 years, Antioch’s Foodbank Ministry has been serving the Eastside community and we remain committed to living out Jesus’ words to his disciples: “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” (Matthew 14:16) #AntiochisLove.
