Food For Life Ministry

Rehoboth’s Food For Life Ministry was started in 2004 by Les Howze, who wanted to do something for the elderly and low income. Pastor Bob had information about a program  at Bethel Methodist Church 100_2099_2that worked through the USDA and100_2053_3 Richmond Area Food Bank. Les and others went to see Bethel’s  food program and were pleased to see that a small church could operate such a program with help from their church members. Phyllis Howze really did not want to be involved in the program because she considered the program Les’ ministry. However, when they looked into it further and realized the paperwork and organization that would be needed, Phyllis changed her mind and has helped Les run the program since the beginning.

The Fredericksburg Area Food Bank, a non-profit group, supplies food to a variety of churches and other agencies 100_2058_2who have a list of people in need of food. In January 2008, Rehoboth will distribute food to 95 recipients. Some recipients are able to come by the church and pick up their food. Church disciples deliver the food to those recipients (approx. 25) who, due to lack of transportation or  health issues, cannot come to the church.
