Surprise!

Who doesn’t love a big juicy burger after a long day of work? Well, except you vegetarians, but they have veggie burgers too! We always love when Mugshots, Inverness Corners gives back to us for our Family Fun Nights where we eat dinner with a restaurant full of old and new friends. Mugshots contributed $200 towards the local ministry efforts of Grace Klein Community. Who knew Interlinc Mortgage would surprise…Keep Reading

Host a Food Drive

Have you ever been in the position where you so desire pancakes but can’t afford the mix or the syrup? Have you ever thought “donuts would be a nice treat today,” and they appeared at your front door? Have you been close to running out of laundry detergent trying to stretch every last drop until you had enough spare change to purchase some… and then God provides unexpectedly? All these scenarios happened…Keep Reading

Givers Always Get

“The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.”…Keep Reading

A Visit to the Orchard

Consider what you do with your days. Maybe you are a teacher and spend hours developing lesson plans and teaching what you know to high school students? Maybe you are a bookkeeper and meticulously enter every dollar in and every dollar out? Maybe you manage people and every day you are responsible to motivate people to do the tasks they were hired to do? Maybe you are a landscaper who…Keep Reading

Doing God’s Work

What ya doing on Mondays and Tuesdays? Volunteers, Liz and Adam, are off work on these days so they serve with Grace Klein Community by caring for people right where they live. They come help sort all the rescued food, and with permission they received from the local police, they set up a free stand to give a hand up and some Jesus encouragement to their neighbors. In her own…Keep Reading

Carry On, Love Warrior

Sharing rescued food is pretty amazing. As more families get involved and learn how to love their neighbors, more food comes. We feel “in over our heads,” but volunteers keep showing up and honestly we cannot capture all the amazing stories of what God is doing with the food we “rescue” from a dismal landfill fate. When a volunteer drives the box truck to our donor to pick up a…Keep Reading

Do You Write?

Since 2009, Grace Klein Community has been serving the Greater Birmingham area through our monthly food delivery. Our September food delivery actually marked our 7 year anniversary of monthly food delivery. Wow, who knows how many people those weekends have impacted between the volunteers and the families that receive the assistance. We can conservatively say food delivery involved over 1000 people this month which would calculate to approximately 84,000 people…Keep Reading

Box Truck Creates More Opportunities

Maybe you knew, or maybe you did not, but Grace Klein Community needed a box truck. Transporting donations has always been a juggle of many volunteer vehicles, a loaned trailer we affectionately named “the goat trailer,” other borrowed trucks and trailers, and a few donated vehicles. Sometimes multiple trips were required or trips had to be rescheduled because of weather issues. We made it work, but nothing about pickups and…Keep Reading

Why the GKC Market Matters

Below are four testimonials from different families who participate in the GKC Trade Market. If you haven’t heard of the GKC Trade Market, you may want to read THIS POST. I wanted to drop a quick note and let you know how much Grace Klein Community food traders has stretched our faith and allowed us to trust God more. For the last three weeks, we’ve been giving away half of…Keep Reading

Our Grandmamas Would Be Proud

Many of you visit Trader Joe’s every week for groceries, but maybe you haven’t realized you are supporting “Not Your Average Joe.” Grace Klein Community could never explore creative ideas, like our Sunday GKC Trade Market, without rescued food. What is rescued food? It’s the food that community volunteers pick up, right before it finds itself in the dumpster, behind local stores in our community. It’s the food that is…Keep Reading

Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham

At the end of May 2016, we were surprised and overwhelmingly blessed by a $20,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham. We look forward to purchasing a reliable box truck for the transporting of food to feed families. Currently, we make multiple trips in a variety of vehicles, using loaned trailers, to pick up food donations. We pray away the rainy weather in hopes we can transport boxes…Keep Reading

Huie Law Serve Day

On Friday, June 3rd, a group of volunteers from Huie Law spent the afternoon serving at the Grace Klein Community office.  Prior to the scheduled service day, they spent several weeks collecting non-perishable food items, toiletries, and paper products in order to assist the over 200 families that Grace Klein Community provides a food box to every month.  The staff was split into two teams and were extremely competitive in filling the large donation…Keep Reading
