About Me

Reverend Dick and Judy Miller believe in miracles! They believe God to see things happen! We believe that together we can help others who are temporarily in need of assistance and can benefit from our ministry. Our slogan is "Feeding the Multitude on Faith and a Few Loaves and Fishes." We have thought about this ministry for years, but only recently we decided to "get out of the boat" and get things done. Our Lord is able to do abundantly above all that we say or ask! He only asks that we go into all the world and minister His Word. With Loaves and Fishes Food Ministry we have begun to do just that! "[Jesus] Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, He gave thanks and …they all ate and were satisfied." (Matthew 14:19,20; Mark 6:41,42; Luke 9:16,17)

Loaves and Fishes Food Ministry fed 298 people this weekend with their Thanksgiving Food Distribution. Over 97 families were given Thanksgiving food boxes containing either a 3 pound ham or turkey. All the trimmings for the Thanksgiving dinner were included including: baked beans, cranberries, stuffing, mashed potatoes or scalloped potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoes, vegetables, jello, fruit or pudding and pie filling. Also included were bread or rolls.

We would like to thank all those individuals and businesses who helped make this a wonderful event. Without your help, we could not have done this. It takes all of us working together to continue to feed the people of Cocke County. A special thank you to Powerhouse Church in Cosby, the DAV in Newport, Amvets in Newport. Elijah's Food Pantry of White Pine, Mount Airy Methodist Church of Morristown, Cocke County Wholesale, Bush Beans,  Food City West and East of Newport, Save-A-Lot Grocery Store, and IGA Grocery Store. We salute you for your dedication and heart to feed the hungry.

We helped individuals and families from Cosby, Newport, Del Rio, Parrotsville, Morristown, White Pine and Hartford. We managed to feed all those who called except one family who failed to call us back to see if we still had food left.

Our heartfelt thanks goes out to all our wonderful and faithful volunteers and without their dedication it would have been impossible to accomplish the Food Distribution.

A Christmas Food Distribution is planned, again by appointment only. We will have a news release in the Newport Plain Talk before Distribution Day. Again, you must register before the event and the deadline date will be announced.

We need continued support with food drives from local individuals and businesses and churches to make these food distributions continue. Pass the word and see if we can't all make a difference!

God bless you all!

Appointments were required as we did not want to have anyone show up and then not be able to give them a basket. Our Christmas Distribution will also require pre-registration with appointments. Please call 423-487-4530 to register. Leave a message if nobody answers. Thanks and God bless!
