CHCC Food Ministry
The mission of The Pantry at Colonial Heights Christian Church is to share the love of Jesus Christ by caring for the spiritual and practical needs of the community.
The Ministry began in 1996 primarily to assist members, families, and friends of the church. By God’s Blessing, and with the help of many dedicated volunteers, the Ministry quickly grew and now provides food and other needed items to over 600 families per month in the Kingsport area. Funds come from the general budget of the church, and the food is obtained from Second Harvest Food Bank in Gray, Tennessee, and other private organizations. (Giving and Volunteer Opportunities are listed below.)
This program is open to residents of Sullivan county and portions of Washington and Hawkins counties and operates under U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines. Likely eligible clients include SSI recipients, households living at or beneath Federal Poverty Guidelines, Medicaid recipients, and those who have recently lost a job.
