We aim to use the MBC Food & Resource Pantry to satiate spiritual hunger with the Gospel and battle physical hunger in DC, Maryland, and Virginia.
Over 1,000,000 people don't know where their next meal will come from in the DMV. As the Church body, we wish to intentionally respond to this need by providing the necessary resources, thereby creating many opportunities for saved lived and rescued hearts. By establishing relationships with social workers, fire stations, police departments and many other pipelines, we are able to detect and meet the needs of the disadvantaged in our region.
