Montgomery Village Baptist Center exists to share Jesus with the South Knoxville community, to a large degree with the residents of Montgomery Village and the surrounding neighborhood. We do this by meeting physical needs (food, clothing, household items) and after-school programs, all as a way to make Jesus known.
On the first and third Wednesday of every month, we have a food pantry. Our food pantry offers a unique way to love and interact with our neighbors in the community. We believe in allowing the dignity of choice. The people that come are given the opportunity to choose what they would like to take. In addition, a volunteer helps take them through the line and in the process interacts with them. For some people, this is one of the few interactions they have that week. The people that come are both people living on the streets or in a home with a limited income.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps) provides nutritional assistance benefits to children and families, the elderly, the disabled, unemployed and working families. SNAP helps supplement monthly food budgets of families with low-income to buy the food they need to maintain good health and allow them to direct more of their available income toward essential living expenses. DHS staff determines eligibility of applicants based on guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The primary goals of the program are to alleviate hunger and malnutrition, and to improve nutrition and health in eligible households. DHS has a dual focus on alleviating hunger and establishing or re-establishing self-sufficiency.
The Knoxville Free Food Market is a free food ministry through The Grove Church that gives food to any person or family in need. The Market is open the third Saturday of each month from 10am – 12pm. There is no qualification process for food and no proof of identification is required.
The Love Kitchen provides meals, clothing and emergency food packages to homebound, homeless and unemployed persons. We work with local agencies to provide meals, secure used clothing, and donate services in the hope of promoting the self-sufficiency of those we serve. The organization has no paid staff; all donations go to those who need it most. Our ultimate goal is to provide nourishment for anyone who is hungry and to establish a community center to serve as a safe haven supporting area children and their families. Every Wednesday there is an in-house breakfast and emergency food bags filled with both canned and dry goods are distributed. Thursdays, an in-house lunch is served and volunteers deliver meals to the elderly, disabled, and homebound.
The Shepherd of Hope Food Pantry seeks to provide daily bread to equip people for life in Jesus’ name. Daily bread carries all types of meaning: physical nourishment, spiritual guidance and community. We are open to the community on the 1st Monday, 3pm-5pm and 3rd Monday, 3pm-7pm every month.
Open on Thursday mornings from 9-11am serving families in the 37914 and 37917 zip code areas.
