Operation Share is an on-going food ministry supported by our churches in GCA. It was started by a few people who had a heart for reaching people. Three sites distribute food once a week. They are located at Park Victoria Baptist Church, Rosewood Community Church, and Emmanuel Baptist Church. Last year Second Harvest Food Bank provided food for an average of 243,500 people a month in our area.
When people come in to pick up their food, Operation Share staff always take time to talk with them about what is happening in their lives and offer to pray with them.

338,347 lbs. of Food Distributed
One one occasion a man that was coming in for food decided to help. He has since found a job but he still finds time to be come early, pray with the staff, and help every week. Many beneficiaries of Operation Share come back to say thanks and to tell about how their prayers have been answered.
This last year, Operation Share picked up 338,347 pounds of food from Second Harvest Food Bank at a value of $575,189.90. Again this year, the food bank has decided not to charge for the poundage! In the last ten months, Operation Share has served 4,598 households and a total of 12,937 individuals. The local economy may be stronger in our area, but there are still many people here that need help with food. Thank you for supporting our effort to reach the hungry, not only with food, but also with the Gospel of Jesus.
