East Tennessee Food on Foot




For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger and ye took me in:  Matthew 25:35, K.J.V.

We were so blessed this weekend for our second annual Sparkle banquet!! We had 32 wonderful children who participated in this years mentoring program. A tremendous thanks to Pastor Scott Layer and his wife Kate and the entire FUMC team of volunteers who taught these sweet children all about Jesus this summer!! We are so grateful to all the sponsors who bought our kids clothing and took them shopping for this special banquet not to mention those who provided this "fancy" meal for these children and their families. What a special evening of awards, recognition, and praise to the one who gives all good gifts - our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!!! We can't wait till next year!

Tn Food on Foot was founded as a Christian-based nonprofit organization that began providing nutritious food bags to the hungry and homeless in Morristown to help underprivileged children. Although it originally began as a children's ministry, God has grown it into an organization that now provides over 1200 food bags per month for both children and adults in the Lakeway area and surrounding counties.  In addition, nearly 870 food bags are distributed to local elementary and middle schools each week who have needy children.  Over 185 toiletry bags are given out each month as well as school supplies and backpacks. In 2013, over 1500 backpacks loaded with supplies were handed out to local children in need.  Food on Foot also distributes special religious holiday items.  This past Easter, they distributed 750 Easter baskets filled with goodies and each one included a bible that was donated by Lifeway Christian Store.  At Christmas, they handed out almost 1000 new toys and 1000 pairs of new pajamas to children that otherwise might have had nothing.  Food on Foot's hope for the future is that NO child will go hungry. 

*During the Summer months, Food on Foot will continue to distribute food bags on Saturday mornings at 11:30am, but will also be supplying food bags on Wednesday mornings as well.
