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!
Awesome!

    2. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I?m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I?d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon.

    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.
