Over the past 20+ years, families in the Tampa Bay area have had access to home-cooked meals on Thanksgiving day, due to Revealing Truth Ministries’ Families Feeding Families initiative.
Families Feeding Families, built on the power of knowing that if the ministry couldn’t feed all families, together, they could feed many, is an initiative that focuses on providing families in need with food on Thanksgiving.
Because Thanksgiving, for many, is a time of sitting around the dinner table, spilling over the details of one’s gratitude and thankfulness, this experience is one that Revealing Truth Ministries wanted to ensure that no family had to miss out on. Every year, this impactful event is fulfilled by members of both Revealing Truth Ministries, and of the community, coming together on the day of the event to fill the bags with various food items – enough to enjoy Thanksgiving, plus the leftovers! During this event, cars line-up one after the other, as volunteers pass the Thanksgiving bags to each car while waving & cheering “Happy Thanksgiving”.
This year, Families Feeding Families had the privilege of passing out over 800 Thanksgiving bags, feeding more than 3,200 people and 800 families in the Tampa Bay Area. With bags being passed out from Revealing Truth Ministries’ Tampa, Wesley Chapel, and St. Petersburg campuses, as well as at Maximo Elementary and Woodlawn Elementary, Families Feeding Families reached more families this year than ever before.
Envision Cares is a proud partner of Revealing Truth Ministries, and our team enjoyed playing our small part in such a huge impact day for the Tampa Bay Region.
