The Neighbors Feeding Neighbors Food Ministry was created in February 2018 by Amy and Allen Hoilman of Buladean, NC. Amy felt in her heart that the Lord wanted her to start this ministry to help the local people in need, but she was felt like she was not capable of starting such a ministry. She ran from the the idea for 2 years and then Lord showed Amy an unmistakable sign and Amy and Allen let go and let God! What started out as helping 3 families in late February 2018, has grown to over 500 families each month. God is doing great things in this ministry. We are a partner agency with MANNA Foodbank. The NFN Food Ministry helps individuals and families who are struggling with food insecurity. We reach out with love and respect to help families struggling to put food on the table. We don't judge the families we serve, we love them as ourselves. The NFN Food Ministry is operated 100% by volunteers, as we do not have any paid positions. All of the food programs we offer are free of charge to everyone. In 2019, we distributed 192,130 pounds of food to over 9,000 people. We also hosted 21 Community Meals. This ministry has touched many lives, many which have decided to give back and volunteer their time to help others that are in need.
The Neighbors Feeding Neighbors Food Ministry currently serves families of Mitchell, Avery and Yancey Counties in Western North Carolina
