Reaching Out at First Baptist
The goal of the Manna Pantry ministry is to feed the more than 30% of Hondo residents in poverty both physically and spiritually.
Manna Pantry was founded on the vision of a couple who saw children and families in Hondo in need of food and other necessities. From the beginning it has grown into a major outreach ministry in Hondo and other local communities.
Every other Monday each month, volunteers drive to our partner, San Antonio Daily Bread Ministries. Food products are loaded into our trailer and brought back to FBC Hondo. Another team meets the trailer and prepares the food for our distribution on Monday afternoon from 1 PM to 3 PM.
We distribute food to about 75 families in Hondo and surrounding communities.
Manna Pantry Mondays are upbeat, encouraging, and life-changing. Families have their needs assessed, receive food, hear a short Biblical devotion, and are loved and cared for.
