MARBLE FALLS — Members of St. Frederick Baptist Church say the Lord has always provided for the Mission Outreach Ministry, and now they’re hoping the community will also help the 26-year-old food program.

“We need more funds and we definitely need more volunteers,” said church member Bessie Jackson.

Under the program, the congregation and volunteers from participating churches cook and prepare meals for delivery to the homebound and others in need across southern Burnet County.

Then, drivers drop off hot meals on Saturdays on routes through Horseshoe Bay, Kingsland, Cottonwood Shores, Granite Shoals and Marble Falls as part of the program that helps feed the hungry.

But as the need increases, financial contributions and more volunteers are required.

For those reasons, a fundraiser for Mission Outreach is 7 p.m. Oct. 8 at First United Methodist Church of Marble Falls, 1101 Bluebonnet Drive. Tickets are $25.
