In the town of Lula, Georgia, there are two people who are looking to share Love and Kindness with their neighbours. In this small Hall County town, Amanda Browning and Mandy Stewart are doing what they can to help.
Amanda owns Amanda’s Farm to Fork, a Restaurant that’s a staple of main street in Lula. She came to visit and never left, and now she uses food to connect with people. That’s how she and Mandy decided they were going to connect with people in need.
“I just wanted to show a little love to our community and be the hand at the feet of Jesus and try to spread love instead of hate right now,” said Mandy, of Love Your Neighbor Ministries.
And that’s why she came up with the Blessings Box.
Its a free pantry that sits outside Amanda’s Restaurant. Stocked by donation, what ever anyone can afford to give, it’s always open and free to anyone who wants something from it. “It’s good for the heart. It’s good for the soul,” said Browning. “It’s good to know that people might not know you but they still care.”
This caring act for the community is your Good News Story of the Day, which you can read in full and watch the video on here. While these little pantries are not unique, there are some in Brantford, they are a kind effort. If you want to know more about these, check out Amanda’s Restaurant on Facebook, or Love Your Neighbor on Facebook.
