Joseph's Storehouse Food Ministry in Lebanon distributes food at no charge to qualified Wilson County residents who can prove their residency and income. The majority of the food is distributed during the last weekend of each month (except in November and December when it is on the weekend before Thanksgiving and Christmas). Each family is evaluated on a case-by-case basis for situations including emergencies, job losses, health issues, lapses in government assistance and/or other unforeseen circumstances.


Joseph's Storehouse Food Ministry is a division of Love One Another Embassy, Inc., which was started in 1996 by Pastors Bob and Peggy Evans as a Christian ministry to share the love and gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ throughout the world.


In 1999, Bob Evans began to see an increasing number of the elderly and sick trying to live on incomes well below the poverty level and began to direct his efforts to provide food for the needy. He called this new outreach Joseph's Storehouse after the Biblical reference to the book of Genesis and the story of Joseph, who was used by God to provide for His people in their time of great hunger.


Other facts about the organization: * Josephs Storehouses administrative cost is consistently low, only 2.4 percent in 2010. * Interested individuals may give with confidence knowing that 97.6 percent of the funds go directly to program cost feeding people. * More than 2,500 families are registered with the organization, and each month 450-500 wheelbarrows overflowing with food are given to needy people in the community. * Approximately 40 percent of those served are elderly or disabled, and another 35 percent or more are single mothers who support children on a subsistence income.
