The types of food they give away vary from day to day from chicken, milk, oranges, celery, potatoes, can goods, bread, cheese, onions, rice, ground beef, and apples, etc.
No one is being asked to join the Ministry, where they live, or what kind of shopping cart or car they have. The only thing being asked of them is to bring their own bags to carry the food and to not be hungry today.
Food is given every Monday and Friday from 2 pm until dusk at North Oakland Missionary Baptist Church, 1060 32nd St. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, they make deliveries to the elderly and physically challenged.
Pastor Jones also co-hosts a Christian radio show with a national audience of listeners called The Brew Crew weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 9 am PST. on kbrg/db.com.
Pastor Jones also said “It is very important that people register to vote and we are setting a goal to get 10,000 new registered voters from our radio show. We are partnering with the Make A Difference And Vote movement and their plan to get 20 million new voters by the 2020 November election.”
They have started their first phase of voter registration by asking people in their free food line if they are registered to vote and if not asking if they are willing to. Then they asked them to go to www.vote1234.com from their cell phones and get registered right then in minutes.
During Black history month their free events feature speakers, voter registration, and free servings of BBQ, potato salad, green beans, and refreshments on.

Jones said, “Your family and friends never have to go to bed hungry again with ministries like these that are doing God’s work but you have to show up.”
