Gleaners Food Assistance


This program targets low-income seniors in Kern County as recipients of food, and offers seniors a time to interact with others, enjoy some good company and games, as well as receive food.

Food is delivered to BFC on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month for distribution to registered seniors. Sacks include at least ten items including fresh fruits and vegetables, bread, snack items, and staples. This program is to be both food relief and encouragement of social interaction for seniors. This ministry at BFC is run by volunteers who help unload the Gleaners delivery truck, bag the individual food orders for the recipients, greet the seniors and distribute the food. 

To learn more, or to register to receive food assistance, please contact the church office.
