The Rotary Club of Vestavia Hills said “YES!”

If you’ve been to our office recently, you’ve probably noticed we’re out of space. Food is replenished as soon as it leaves. A commercial freezer was donated last month, but it is in loaned storage as we have nowhere to put it. Piles of clothes are everywhere because the donation room is overflowing. We started a building expansion initiative called 50K50Days and together we’ve raised over $10,000 so far. If…Keep Reading

To God be the Glory – Great Things He has Done

For the past five years Grace Klein Community members have had the honor of building relationship with the *Smith Family, a loyal mama and her sweet girls. The Varvoutis Family met *Sarah, Jane (16) and Kristen (10) approximately five years ago, through the monthly food delivery ministry of Grace Klein Community. At the time these two families lives intersected, Sarah, a single mom, was without work. Her girls have always…Keep Reading

No Wonder It’s Called Community

In August of 2016, The Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham gifted Grace Klein Community with an amazing grant, allowing us to purchase a box truck. The box truck opened many new opportunities, including our ability to receive more rescued food. After an accident at the end of May 2017 community truly realized how hard it is to operate without the use of the box truck. How did we manage the load before?…Keep Reading

Jack’s Gives Back

Refrigerator and freezer space at the Grace Klein Community office has always been a challenge. We have dreamed of having a walk in cooler/freezer, but could never have imagined how God would bring a long chain of events and relationships together to provide one for us. On Monday, July 17th, a team of volunteers traveled to Fort Payne, AL to pick up a walk in refrigerator/freezer donated from a Jack’s…Keep Reading

From Trash to Treasure

A community member sent us these beautiful pictures of her garden in an email titled “Morning Eye Candy.” What a treat to see how God has used rescued everything to create such beauty and usability.  Also, what a great reminder to all of us of how He Himself welcomes us in our mess, much of what we would consider trash, rescues us and turns us into something beautiful. “This is…Keep Reading

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
