WE FIGHT POVERTY WITH LOVE
Through programs that serve the body, mind, and soul, WELL OF GRACE CHURCH helps alleviate the symptoms of poverty then works to address the root issues that cause it.
Tuscaloosa has a population of 97,373 with 23.7% living at or below the national poverty level. That’s over 23,000 Tuscaloosa residents who struggle with poverty.
The mission of the WELL OF GRACE FOOD BANK is to provide a place where the needy receive food assistance as well as support to get involved in activities that will assist them in growth towards a brighter tomorrow. By providing a pantry to the surrounding area we are able to assist our community with a food pantry where clients can receive a variety of food and personal care items. Volunteers help to organize, schedule, collect, distribute, and ultimately serve the community on a weekly basis.
