Serving over 900 households in Howard County, the Food Bank addresss the needs of the less fortunate in our area. Grace organizes food drives several times throughout the year to donate much-needed food and household items. A number of Grace members serve as volunteers at the Food Bank, sorting donated goods and keeping the shelves stocked.
