5 Loaves 2 Fish Food Pantry Program
Feeding the hungry is Full Armor Ministries' and the 5 Loaves 2 Fish program call to fulfill God's purpose by helping to help those who serve those in need fulfilling Acts 20:35 mandate.
We also believe that Jesus Christ is exactly who He claims to be and is the reason we are specifically focusing on church food pantries. In addition to feeding the hungry, the church serves a much larger purpose: pointing people to Christ. John 6:35 Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. So not only should it be the church that helps feed the hungry, but it also needs to be that beacon of light and hope that shines through the darkness, pointing the way to Christ fulfilling our spiritual hunger.
The Goal of the Program
The goal of the 5 Loaves 2 Fish program is to develop and implement a United States national database of independent church food pantries and provide an annual donation to all active pantries entered into the program.
There is no affiliation with Full Armor Ministries, and church pantries are free to sign up or decline entry. However, we do vet the process to avoid sending payment to inactive pantries. Verification of 501c3 status is made through IRS public records, but this is strictly for our purposes to ensure the program's validity, and we will NOT share it publicly.
The initial list of donation recipients will consist of the first 25 entered into the program, and they will each be guaranteed a $50 donation in 2022. Once the 25 is achieved, a waiting list is implemented. To come off the waiting list and be entered into the active list of donation recipients is dependant on donations received and profits generated through our online www.onepathmarketplace.com.
Through annual donations of financial support contributions, each church food pantry (who knows their needs best) can use the funds as they see fit. We only ask that the donations be true to their purpose and only be used for pantry needs.
