Oakbrook Food Ministry

“What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, ‘Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,’ but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”

                                                                                                                          James 2:14-1

The Oakbrook Food Ministry provides food for over 100 low-income families and homeless persons from Herndon, Reston, and Sterling every week. Over the past year, Oakbrook’s food ministry has served over 700 unique individuals and families! Not only do we try to provide for the physical needs of our guests, but we also offer prayer and counseling support to help meet their pressing spiritual and practical needs.

During Thanksgiving and Christmas, the Food Ministry distributes hundreds of holiday meals to the needy in the community. In addition, Oakbrook distributes gifts to children of families in need.

This ministry is our opportunity to share the love of God with our community and those who are less fortunate in our midst. Members of the Food Ministry team speak both English and Spanish in order to communicate with a broader cross-section of our diverse community.
