Throughout the year In The Mean Time Ministries runs food pantries and gives away more than 1.2 million pounds of food and serves more than 10,000 hot meals to the homeless community in their area.  Tip Top Poultry, Pleasant Grove Church, Publix, Trader Joe’s and Turner Chapel Church and many, many others all contribute to make us a success!

A free community lunch and dinner is served in a Christian setting every Wednesday afternoon from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM and on Thursday night from 6:00 – 7:30 PM for the homeless and economically disadvantaged people.  Meals are served at the The Shepherd’s located at  186 Alexander Street, Marietta, GA 30060Moore says, “The meal is designed to make those attend feel better about themselves.”  It is called a community dinner because you don’t have to be homeless to attend.  Another aspect of the dinner is entertainment.  Volunteers from this ministry wait on the guests and serve the food and each week a church choir or pianists or other musician is brought in to provide entertainment for the diners.

The Thanksgiving dinner is a program for Adults and children and feeds about 2000 people a year.  The program usually begins around 10:00 AM with dinner served from 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM.  Delivery is available for homebound elderly residents of Cobb.  Please contact us for details regarding the event at (770)-792-0097 or click here.

Each Christmas, In The Mean Time Ministries also provides for those in need a very special Christmas Dinner.  Toys and Christmas baskets are provided as well.  To volunteer and to attend any of these wonderful events, contact us at (770)-792-0097 or click here.
