Our Charity for the Breakfast is "Shining Light Gardens"
Since 2008, the Shining Light Garden Foundation, a non-profit organization, has been growing fresh vegetables to help feed the homeless, hungry and forgotten. Our focus is strictly on growing fresh produce and giving it to the needy for God’s glory. This ministry has distributed over 400 bushels of fresh produce to those in need in our community in the last six months.
All of the vegetables grown by The Shining Light Garden Foundation are given away, for free. We believe it is God’s vision to join together in unity, with the body of Christ, to make an impact in our community and to show compassion for others as Jesus did. "Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in the power to act." Proverbs 3:27 (NIV)
God has blessed the ministry’s efforts and they now have more than 12 acres being farmed with more being prepared.
How can you get involved?
Your support improves the quality of life for hundreds of people in our community by enabling us to provide wholesome, nutritious, locally grown produce to families in need in Indian River County.
You can volunteer your time in the following areas:
- Clearing Shrubs and Brush from the property recently donated
- Preparing the land for planting
- Picking Vegetables
- Boxing up Vegetables
- Delivery of Vegetables
- Of course you can give financially as well
Special needs right now are the capital improvements of the new property so that it can be put to effective use. All funds raised for the ministry are used to purchase seeds, farm equipment, and capital improvements such as well and irrigation equipment – no one receives a salary. Donations can be made out to First Church of God with the note: Shining Light Garden.
