Feed The Multitudes


But for Clifton Hooks, it's just another day he's struggling to find a meal.

"Right now i need help because i am on the food stamp program and they cut my food stamp program, so i had come down for help to see if someone can help me out".

That's why five churches, including Grace Point, Harbor Church, Pinkard Baptist Church and Shady Grove Assembly of God have packed food.

Together, they've made 3,600 bags that will feed more than 18, 000 Wiregrass residents.

"We know that the economy is tough and some tough times but we just want to have a time of encouragement and meet some needs and hopefully meet some spiritual needs as well, " says Jeff Peacock, Pastor at Grace Point Church.

The bags include ham, green beans, rice and a bag of sweet potatoes.

Pastor Jeff Peacock says the bags include a spiritual food as well...a Bible.

"That's the most important thing because you can eat the food that we give you today and tomorrow your going to be hungry but the bible says if you eat this spiritual food that Christ will save your forever, " says Peacock.

"Exactly the words thanksgiving. I have been given a turkey, I have been given a lot of food and encouragement, " says Hooks.

A gift Hook says he will pay forward.

"Someone just asked me if i wanted to be a missionary so I'm discussing that right now, " says Hooks.

"So many stories where people have shared with us things that they have been going thru and the difficult times and what a blessing this food is to them but really they're blessing us, " says Peacock.

Event leaders say they already have churches interested in next year's "Feed The Multitudes" ...From Covington county and Atlanta, with the goal of feeding 30, 000 people.

Anyone interested can emil pastor Jeff Peakcock at Jeff@godobe.org.
