5 & 2 Hunger Ministry

The 5&2 Hunger Ministry was founded in 2003 to help alleviate hunger in Cobb County by supporting local families with their food needs. Just in the past year we have donated $1500 to Cobb County Meals on Wheels and Center for Family Resources, provided 150 lunch size bags of food for members of Holy Comforter and provided $750 in Kroger and Publix Gift cards to help members in our own Church. We plan to donate $1500 of food to MUST Ministry for their Food Pantry. We also hold two food drives a year and have a food barrel in the Parish Hall lobby area throughout the year.

Here’s how you can get involved:

  • Bring non-perishable food items for our food barrels by the parish hall doors (for MUST Ministries Food Pantry).
  • Buy Publix and Kroger gift cards that you can use to buy groceries.
  • We make a 3% margin on these sales (cash or check only, please), which we use to support Cobb County Meals on Wheels, MUST Ministries, and families in
  • need within our community. The Grocery gift cards are available in increments of $25, $50, $100 & $200.Help make lunches for the MUST summer lunch program (Sundays in June).
  • Link your Kroger Plus Card to benefit St. Peter & St. Paul (see below for the procedure).
