In an effort to further support the community, the Greenfield Area Christian Center (GACC) has started a basic meal preparation program called “Food for the Soul”. The monthly program, held at the GACC facility at 912 N. Fifth Street, is aimed at providing basic meal preparation ideas and skills, as well as nutrition information to those who utilize the GACC Food Pantry.
“We have been providing basic foods to help families make ends meet for years,” said Rhonda Sponcil, GACC board member and co-leader of ‘Food for the Soul’. “It seemed like a natural next step to help our families better understand basic food preparation and meal planning to help stretch their budgets.” Rhonda Simpson, also a GACC board member, shares program leadership and works to spread the word and recruit participation.
GACC has partnered with South Central Power Company Foundation, which provided a generous grant to support the program. The group meets on the third Wednesday of each month, from 1-2:30 p.m. All food supplies are provided and volunteers are on hand to assist. All are welcome, but reservations are requested and can be made by calling Simpson at 937-981-7176.
“We invite everyone to join us for food, fun, and fellowship as we work together to prepare delicious meals for your family,” said Sponcil. “It’s all about working as a community to help each other.”
