Autuaga County Church Fights Hunger, Donates 10,000 pounds of Food


By Alabama News Network

Starvation is a reality for every one in six people in the United States, but one Autauga County church is fighting to stop it.

Centerpoint Fellowship Church held its second annual churchwide drive to benefit the Autauga Interfaith Care Center which houses a food pantry and clothing closet to serve Autauga County.

The drive was from 12:30 to 4 P.M. on West Third Street in downtown Prattville.

The goal is to bring in more than 10,000 pounds of food to benefit the needy.

Church members say it's a group effort to put an end to hunger...

"We're represented by 40 churches and they contribute throughout the year, so it's great for the community and it just shows that Prattville really cares and it really makes a big difference to those in need," said dave everist, executive director of Autauga Interfaith Care Center.

Centerpoint collected food, clothing, and home good items.

Today was also a time for Centerpoint members to enjoy fellowship as church leaders grilled burgers and hotdogs to feed everyone as they worked.
