About The Food Bank
The Believer’s Chapel Food Bank is used for those in need in the community who are without food.
We feed between 3,600-4000 people per month with food. We are feeding over 3,00 people each month in 2016 and have to feed more people than we can count. We give out food on Thursdays from 11:30 AM to 3 PM.
If you were to buy a box of cereal from one of the local stores, you would pay anywhere from $3-5 dollars for it. If we bought cereal down at the Second Harvest Food Bank in Riverside, we could get it for under 20 cents a box. We typically bring up a little over 2,000 pounds of food every week.
No, we don’t get it the food for free, but we do get it at 18 cents a pound. Other than the cost of gas, all donations of money go to buy food. Everyone donates their time and energy to be a blessing to people in need.We are not government funded, and therefore are dependent upon charitable organizations, churches, restaurants, and people who donate cash or food.
We want to thank these organizations and businesses: Big Bear Valley Real Estate; Vons Market; Stater Brothers; the First Baptist Church of Big Bear; the Presbyterian Church; Starbucks; the Teddy Bear Restaurant, the Riverside Foundation, the Bakery, the Copper Q, the Rotary Club, the Union Bank, the China Garden, Big Bear Can Tree and the many individuals who make it possible. It is your generous donations that make it possible.
If you want to donate, you can send a letter to Believer’s Chapel, PO Box 2265, Big Bear City, CA 92314, through the Online Giving page on this website or via donation in the Church office offering slot located by the church office.
Meet the Team
If it wasn't for our ever growing staff here at the Believers Chapel Food Bank, we wouldn't be able to feed the amount of families we feed today. So to say thanks, we want to highlight several of our pantry workers. Each one helping out our community on family at a time. Make sure you let them know how much you appreciate them the next time you see them.
