Brighton Adventist Church provides food for the hungry » Pam Taylor, the communication officer for Brighton Adventist Church shared the following report about their food bank.
"The Brighton Adventist Church Food Bank continues to serve many families twice a month, and I am amazed by the amount of food that goes out every two weeks. The team continues to be innovative in the techniques they use to minister to the community. As they have worked to streamline the process, they have enlisted the services of Silvia Orian to give presentations to the recipients of the food as they wait for their turn to be served. Silvia has presented on eating disorders and depression, and her talks have been very well received by our guests. Isn't it exciting to be able to offer such quality service and instruction to those who need it? Truly, our Food Bank team members are the hands of Christ, working to better God's world right here in our own little corner of it!"
