This mission is accomplished through an innovative process of holistic care. This strategy includes caring for each person physically, emotionally, relationally, financially, mentally, and spiritually.

PTC_2016FoodDrive-369x230 2016 Holiday Food DrivesThe Five Loaves and Two Fish Food Pantry provides a monthly bag of groceries to families in need. The Food Pantry seeks to provide several cans of vegetables, canned tuna or salmon, peanut butter, dry goods such as corn meal, bread, and meat in each allocation. Whenever they are available, fresh fruit and vegetables are also included. The Food Pantry is a partner in the Spalding County Collaborative Authority for Families and Children. As such, the Food Pantry works to connect families in need with the community resources most able to help them. For this reason, the Food Pantry avoids taking on new projects that “reinvent the wheel,” and instead support the work of other community agencies to address areas of need other than hunger.
