At Eastgate Baptist we want to be a church that serves and meets the needs of our community.  We certainly want to provide all people with the message of the Bread of Life & Living Water that is Jesus Christ... He is the "spiritual food" we need to receive for eternal life.  We also want to help those persons and families that need physical food to help in this everyday life.  Our food bank is open on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m.  We also take donations of goods and monies to provide for our boxes.  An average box for a familiy of 4 costs $35.  The items we collect are listed below.  Thank you for stepping in to help feed the hungry.
