SPONSOR LUNCH BOXES

Your 'purchase' of lunch boxes on this website will cover the cost of buying a nutritious lunch for health professionals working on the front lines. Currently distribution is happening at hospitals, EMT, and fire stations in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens, NY with plans to expand if sufficient donations are provided.  We have been coordinating with several Anabaptist churches in the Bronx, NY and we're growing from the number of contacts they initiated.  

A Tax-deductible receipt will be emailed to you after you donate through this are available by creating an account while 'checking out'.

Expand your contribution by calling your family and friends and asking them for commitments too. This need is expected to present itself for several months and is expected to shift into additional cities.

Mail donations via check directly to:
One Kingdom Community
2044 W. Main St.
Ephrata, PA 17522
 (earmarked "Feed our Health Workers")

VOLUNTEER TO PACKAGE

There is a need for volunteers in the Ephrata, PA area to help prepare these boxes for shipment to NYC. If you are interested in packing please register as a volunteer.  Text/call Rhoda Groff at 717.572.0111 if you have any questions about packing details or wish to bring in a large group.

In an effort to protect our volunteers and the health workers we are doing the following:

  • All volunteers will be screened by EMTs and other trained personnel prior to entering the building.
  • Hand washing for everyone  before starting to work.
  • Everyone who volunteers will be wearing masks, gloves, hair nets, and aprons while handling food.
  • Social distancing will be practiced, trying and keep six feet between yourself and others whenever possible.
  • If you or anyone in your family living with you has experienced fever, coughing, or shortness of breath within the last three days you will be asked not to enter our building.

 

DISTRIBUTION

Service teams are being stationed in NYC to distribute these lunch boxes and to be an encouragement to the health and emergency workers who are giving so much. There are currently needs for young men willing to put their lives on the line and serve on location for up to three weeks. It should be fully expected that a two week quarantine will be required when returning home. Please contact Jamin Mast at 715.579.8464 or JaminMast@KingdomChannels.org if you are interested in serving in NYC. Applicants must be 18 years or older.

 

LOGISTICS

Refrigerated straight trucks and drivers are needed to transport skids containing 240 boxes each into the drop-off centers (currently the Bronx). If you are able to provide truck and/or time please text/call Bryan Weaver at 717.587.3110.

 

PRAY

Pray that God will heal our land; that He will provide strength and wisdom for the many who are leading in this fight against an invisible enemy.  Pray for the many who are sick and dying.  Pray that God's name may be glorified.
