Feeding the Multitude 2021

14th Annual Feeding of the Multitude. Nov 20 12 - 3 p.m.

Our goal is to feed 5000 people with 1200 bags of food and 1000 turkeys plus 200 plated meals for the home-bound.

We will provide:

  1. Drive through pick-up of bags of groceries to feed a Thanksgiving meal to a family of 4 and a 10-12 lb. frozen turkey.   
  2. Homebound cooked meals provided for true home-bound people who have no transportation or ability to cook their own meals.
  3. Prayer Teams via Facebook live stream or private telephone call in line. We will also have our prayer chain.
  4. Feeding our Multitude of Pets.  We continue to offer free pet food and spaying/neutering education, thanks to our partners, Pet Helpers and Charleston Animal Society.
