|By this time it was late in the day, so his disciples came to him. "This is a remote place," they said, "and
it's already very late. Send the people away so they can go to the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves
something to eat." But He answered, "You give them something to eat."

|| We have recently completed our facility improvements.
As the ministry serves an ever-increasing need
in the community, we needed more and more space for workflow processes. We had
outgrown our building.
When the Sevier County Food Ministries started in March of 1992, we served 135 families in
the first week. Over the past ten years Sevier County Food Ministries
has gone from serving an average of 764 families per week to an average
of 1,123 families per week.
||Sevier County Food Ministries is a voluntary interfaith ministry to help assure that no one in
Sevier County goes hungry.
We are guided by the examples of Christ who understood and fed the multitudes.
We welcome everyone. We do not turn anyone away who has a genuine need. Each family may return once a week during the time they need help.
In addition to food, we provide prayer and counseling for
those who request it. We also give emergency donations of clothes, household items, blankets, etc.
We have a thrift store whose main goal is to make available to our needy neighbors clothing, household items and home decor
at very reasonable prices. At the same time, anyone is welcome to shop. All money from purchases goes directly to buy food.
The Sevier County Food Ministry maintains a hospitality table where neighbors can sit and chat and enjoy refreshments.
The food ministry has a prayer request box for those who do not feel comfortable about asking for prayer in person.
