A Greene County church distributed over 2500 pounds of food



Jonesboro, Arkansas – As inflation is taking a severe toll on many Americans across the country, A Paragould church gave out 51 boxes of food.

Brown’s Chapel Baptist Church in Paragould stepped in to help those in their community faced with food insecurity on July 16.

Volunteers loaded up boxes full of food, fresh produce, and even information about the word of God.

The 2500 pounds worth of food given out was made possible with help from the congregation and a partnership with the NEA Food Bank.

According to Senior Pastor Dale Noe, they’ve held these events since October 2020, but today’s event was like no other.

“Adding the fresh produce, that was sort of a neat take,” said Noe. “They get their box and they pick out their fresh fruit.”

Next week, 35 more boxes of food will be distributed. The only requirement is being a Greene County resident.
