Feed the Need Missions has a team on the ground serving those affected by the devastating tornado that ripped through Franklin, Texas and beyond. We are serving hot meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to tornado victims, volunteers, first responders…really anyone who needs some nourishment, both physically and spiritually.
Your help is greatly needed at this time.
We need hands to come help prep and serve food, as well as lend a listening ear to those who might need it. We are serving three meals a day until we are no longer being utilized by the city of Franklin. This could be a couple days or even weeks. But the need is immediate as we currently have a couple people on the ground and it is very hard to keep up with the need.
UPDATE 4/18/19: Our team has moved from the First Baptist Church and is now set up at the Franklin Food Pantry located at 201 S Calvert St, Franklin, TX 77856 to be closer to the heart of the disaster where there is more need. We are serving from 6:30am – 9pm. Please be mindful that you will be responsible for finding a place to sleep if you plan to stay a couple days. We also encourage you, if possible, to review over our Volunteer Orientation if you have not done so before heading to Franklin.
Your flexibility and patience is also appreciated. Disaster relief is never straightforward and plans can change quickly. Please contact Jason Bray at 888-511-7173 x202 with any questions you might have.
Your financial support is also very needed so we can provide enough food and supplies for anyone who stops by. We have set up a donation page specifically for our Franklin, Texas Tornado relief efforts.
UPDATE: We also created a supplies list with specific items we use for our disaster relief efforts. The list can be found here.
Please pray for the individuals and families that have been affected by this terrible disaster. Many homes have been lost and the city has a long rebuilding process ahead of them.
Also pray for our team on the ground. For strength and energy to keep going even when they are tired. And for wisdom and discernment as they talk with those in the thick of it in Franklin.
Thank you, Feed the Need family, for your support each week, and during these times of disaster. You are truly a blessing to so many.
