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 its small beginning, it has grown into a major outreach ministry in Hondo and surrounding communities.
Every other Monday each month, volunteers drive to our partner, San Antonio Daily Bread Ministries where food products are loaded into our trailer and brought back to FBC Hondo. Another team is waiting to meet the trailer and prepare the food for distribution on Monday afternoon from 1:00 to 3:00.
We are currently distributing food to about 65 families.
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.
