A big thanks to all who helped make the Big Kitchen Soup Kitchen a great meal for the surrounding community last month.

From the potato peelers to the turkey donations, every bit helped.

Jackie wanted to thank everyone who contributed, physically, financially and most importantly spiritually.

Here are a few pictures.

Big Kitchen 4th Year Anniversary

28 Aug

Big news from the Big Kitchen (Soup Kitchen Marietta), believe it or not we have been up and running for four whole years come September 4th of this year.  I know, it’s hard to believe.  Of course all the Glory goes to our Father in Heaven!!!  He has just provided time and time again.  I don”t even think about where the food is coming from anymore because I just know it will!!  As long as food keeps coming in we will keep cooking it up and serving it.

This year we finally made partnership with the Atlanta Community Food Bank, a.k.a. ACFB.  this has been such a blessing especially for our budget, because we are able to buy alot of different food supplies for a fraction of the cost that we would pay on the economy.  Most importantly though is that we are able to fill their plates up with a better balanced and even more hearty meal.  Our patrons are so happy to come in and get fed and feel very much at home while they are here.  We really do our best to make them feel special.  Plus, we are now feeding twice a week.

We have literally prepared and served thousands of meals to individuals that might have otherwise just gone hungry that day.

I want to give a special thanks to the individuals that were very instrumental in the long and arduous task of getting our kitchen up to specifications in order for us to make partnership with the ACFB, they really deserve it;
