Drive thru food giveaway planned for Dec. 19

| December 8, 2020

Moving Mountains Ranch along with Cross Creek Cattle Company both in Warsaw will be hosting a drive thru food giveaway at noon on Saturday, Dec. 19 at the Coshocton Fairgrounds. The drive thru is offered to anyone that has a need.

“Last year we helped the Salvation Army with food and goods. We gave a quarter beef in the past. We wanted to do something to help those around us this year. We want to meet the individual needs of people. This is our first year for this. We are shooting for 100 people,” said Emily Schmalzried from the ranch. “Buehler’s and Shopwise in Warsaw are providing canned food and the Amish Bulk Food Store donated potatoes and apples. CC Cattle is providing ground beef and roasts.”

The story of Jesus feeding the 5,000 in Matthew 14:13-21 has a message and meaning that still holds true to this day. The story tells us to be compassionate for the needy, and to provide them with the sustenance of God. With Jesus showing compassion and contributing his time and food, He wants others to follow his lead and do the same.

“Jesus was able to feed the masses and we were hoping to do the same. It’s the reason for the season and we hope we can help,” Schmalzried said. “A small group of people will be passing out food and offering prayer if anyone needs it.”

Moving Mountains Ranch is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing counseling to youth of Coshocton and surrounding counties. “I was inspired by Tom Roahrig of  Higher Hopes Therapeutic Riding Center. We teamed up with JFS to offer the youth in the county our services with horse therapy. It’s an alternative therapy that has been known to work well. Being with animals is very therapeutic,” Schmalzried said.

CC Cattle Co is a small, family operated farm offering fresh, locally raised beef. From the farm to the table, they work hard to provide good quality food that will exceed expectations. For more information, call 740-817-4358.

If anyone in the community wants to help or donate to the food drive thru they can call 330-432-2716.
