Just found out that the Simply Give campaign at Meijer on Southport Rd has added a DOUBLE MATCH day for us which will be one day only, Friday September 7.  That means when you give $10 they will double match with $20!! That would be for any amount you give that day.  This is awesome.  The regular matching will continue through September 15.   THANK YOU SIMPLY GIVE!!!

We are once again recipient of the 2018 fall campaign for SIMPLY GIVE through the MEIJER on Southport Road.  This is great news!!!  The campaign starts Sunday August 19 and goes through Saturday September 15. 

Pick up a donation card at MEIJER, pay $10 at the checkout and that money goes directly into our account.  In fact, MEIJER will match any amount given in increments of $10!!!
We get the amount in FOOD GIFT CARDS at the end of the campaign and they can only be used to buy FOOD for our pantry at MEIJER.  They cannot be given out to clients.

It has been a year since our last partnership with MEIJER and we made $34,450.  Most of that came from the weekend that Meijer double matched which means they gave $20 for every $10 donated.  This year they are only doing the match, so we have alot of work to do  AND I know we can do it!
This is a wonderful program that MEIJER has and our biggest source of $$ for the pantry.

So, PLEASE donate and help us in the fight against hunger.  THANK YOU!!

If you can, hurry to Meijers to take advantage of the double match and help feed the hungry in our community.  God Bless!

Yes, there is a Santa!

Thank you Santa for making a stop by the pantry during your busy schedule in December.  I know it's a late thank you, but we so enjoyed seeing your bright smile and hearing  your "ho ho ho"!

Awesome Pantry Bags

Thank you to Girl Scout Troop 964 for providing their beautiful artwork to some of our pantry bags that our clients can take with them once filled with food.  Great job!

    Civic League - We Thank You!

    Again, the Civic League was very generous in giving God's Bounty their surplus of canned goods totalling 2,867 lbs.  In January Tom Jones, Mike Fengya, Daryl Swain and Sherry Elder helped me bring the food to the pantry.  Great job guys!

    Who We Are

    God's Bounty is a not-for-profit food pantry that exists to distribute food to the needy in Franklin Township, Marion County, Indiana and surrounding area. Our purpose for distributing food is to provide supplemental food to clients who are having difficulty providing food for their families.

    Our on going effort is directed towards soliciting funds and food donations in order to meet the needs of our clients.

    "The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands." -Deuteronomy 28:12

    How We Began

    The Franklin Township Minisiterial Association saw a need in their community for an assistance program. A food pantry was discussed and that idea was presented to their congregations. In the Fall of 2010, those interested from all the churches came together and the Steering Committee was formed. There was so much enthusiasm that work soon began on the building that previously had been the parsonage of New Bethel Baptist Church. A wall was taken down, shelves were built by volunteers, furniture was donated, food donations came from those churches, freezers and refrigerators were brought in and by February 3, 2011 the doors of God's Bounty, Inc. were open and ready for clients. Unfortunately, there was a coating of ice on the trees and streets of our community that morning. Out came men with trucks and shovels, removing the ice from our parking lot and sidewalks, but we had no one venture out to our Grand Opening. Every Thursday, since then, we have served many families from Franklin Township and surrounding areas, sharing our “bounties” with our neighbors in need.
