Share The Love Food Drive

16 Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” Mat 14:16 NIV

"Heaven's Bounty Food Ministry" in Apison, TN is doing a tremendous work in our community. Every week they are feeding hundreds of people right here in our own community who need food assistance. The need is much greater than you might imagine, but together we can make a difference. Ooltewah Nursery began a partnership with Heaven's Bounty earlier this year. A representative from Heaven's Bounty comes each week at the close of our weekly Ooltewah Farmers Market to "glean" the market. Farmers can donate surplus produce, which Heaven's Bounty then distributes the very next day. Perfectly good food should not go to waste when there are hungry people among us. This partnership has been a great relationship, and now we are inviting you to join us. You can share your blessings with those who are not as fortunate, and we are making it easy to do so. Here's how you can help....

You can drop off items:

  • Ooltewah Farmers Market - Info Booth (Every Thursday 3-5pm behind Ooltewah Nursery)


Items Needed:

  • Fresh Produce can be donated on Thursdays only. (Buy 2, Give 1...Blessing both your farmer & your neighbors)
  • Non-perishable food items (canned goods, dry goods, etc.)
  • Personal care items (soap, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, etc.)
  • Pet foods (canned or dry)
  • Monetary donations (make checks out to Heaven's Bounty)

Please do not bring clothing, furniture, etc. You could donate such items at The Samaritan Center, however.

You can donate all year long at Ooltewah Farmers Market. Just ask someone for the market manager.
