STEVENSVILLE — 2019 marks the 15th year that Feed-A-Family: Community Food Program, operating in Queen Anne’s County, has been providing food boxes and frozen turkeys for families who need it for various reasons.

Feed-A-Family is sponsored by local churches and supported through the community. Several schools and businesses provide food drives that the organization passes on to local food pantries. Feed-A-Family provides the opportunity for one family to help out another family at the beginning of the season of sharing thanks and love.

The program serves folks in Stevensville, Chester, Grasonville, Queenstown and parts of Centreville.

Feed-A-Family delivers food and turkeys the Saturday before Thanksgiving. In 2018, Feed-A-Family delivered to 460 families just in Queenstown, Grasonville, Chester, Stevensville and parts of Centreville. Feed-A-Family also helped with three other Thanksgiving programs and three Christmas Programs, three church backpack programs and five local food banks. All together more than 800 families were reached.

Feed-A-Family is not affiliated with any county or state agency and does not receive grants.

If you would be interested in helping, you could: choose and fill a “Turkey Tag” displayed at your local church or business; be on a work or delivery team; donate grocery store gift cards; or pray for another successful year of serving folks in the area.

Grocery cards or checks could be sent to Christ Church, 830 Romancoke Road, Stevensville, MD 21666 with memo to Feed-A-Family.

If you would like to volunteer to help in this year’s Community Food Program, call Bobbie Bell at 410-829-9834 or email bellbloomcoach@yahoo.com or check www.feedafamily.net.
