SIMPLY GIVE 2021

God's Bounty is once again recipient of this next  SIMPLY GIVE  winter campaign at Meijers at 5325 E. Southport Road Sunday February 14 through Saturday April 10.  You purchase a $10 donation card from them which is found at the check-out counter.


 Pay for it at check-out, you can put $10 increments on one card if you choose.  It goes directly into our account in which Meijers will match every donation given.  They will have double match days on Saturday March 13 and Saturday April 3.  

REMEMBER, only the Simply Give cards purchased at the Southport Road location go into God's Bounty fund for this campaign.  

WE can make this a great successful campaign.  Help us and Meijers in the fight against hunger!  THANK YOU!

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.
