Burney Food Co-op celebrates Thanksgiving meal

On November 8, the Burney Food Co-op hosted two Thanksgiving meals, one at 11:30 and one at 4:30. Co-op members enjoyed turkey and gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans, and dessert.

After the meal, Buck Buchanan said a few words giving thanks to God for His many blessings and Sandra Martinez, who oversees the food distribution, shared a Thanksgiving testimony.

Ms. Martinez said, “When I moved to Burney, I wanted to volunteer. I was looking for a place where I felt that God was moving and involved. I felt it here.”

Larry Snelling also gave a moving testimony and thanked everyone in the Intermountain Community for their generous help. Then everyone joined in singing “Give Thanks With A Grateful Heart” and “I Saw The Light.”

After the celebration, food was distributed and each member of the co-op was given a Thanksgiving turkey.

The Burney Food Co-op is a Christian non-profit organization formed by local churches, members of the business community, and volunteers to promote food security, dignity, and civic responsibility in Burney and the Intermountain area.

Volunteers serve meals each month. Each meal is followed by a short devotional message. Co-op members also help to maintain the building, stock the shelves, and participate in local service projects such as cleaning Hwy 299 between Johnson Park and Hwy 89.
