Christian Food Mission
Laurel, MS 39440
Details: The Christian Food Mission (CFM) was originally founded for the general purposes of (1) feeding the needy and (2) sharing the truths of Christianity with others. These purposes have been specifically accomplished in a variety of ways over the years since 1983. CFM began by opening a “soup kitchen” to receive those who needed a free meal at noon. This led to a meal delivery service to the elderly and the creation of a “food bank” for grocery distribution. Along the way, relief work and foreign missions, involving the feeding of those affected by disaster and those in desperate need of food, have been realized. As we’ve been about the feeding of others, we’ve shared our Christian faith and values. We’ve counseled and prayed with many people individually and spoken in group settings. We have consistently shared the gospel and taught on the basics of Christianity. This has led to the development of a “tract ministry” to distribute Christian literature as a means of teaching and evangelism.
