Our History

In 2017, the seeds of The Red Truck Ministry were planted in the boiler room of West Lynchburg Baptist Church, a testament to the answered prayers of area ministers. From its humble inception, The Red Truck Ministry has been a beacon of hope, actively spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ while addressing the nutritional needs of citizens in the eight food deserts across greater Lynchburg.

In its inaugural year, The Red Truck Ministry distributed a remarkable 250,000 pounds of food, reaching over 4,000 people in one of the eight designated food deserts. Fast forward to 2023, and the impact has magnified. Currently stationed in four of Lynchburg's food deserts, The Red Truck Ministry has distributed an awe-inspiring 1.1 million pounds of food to 12,332 individuals in the past 12 months alone.

Our Vision for the Future

Embarking on a visionary journey to meet both current and future needs, The Red Truck Ministry's board is passionately committed to a 5-year fundraising campaign. Our goal is ambitious yet purposeful—to elevate our annual budget to $300,000 and secure $1 million for the acquisition or construction of a 10,000 square foot facility.
