Life in Crisis is a stage of life with the most immediate needs. These needs range from food stability to immediate housing. The programs offered for these individuals are to meet these needs and allow them to move to the next stage, life in transition. 


Food Box Program

The Sumner Center @ NF gets the opportunity on the fourth Saturday of each month to go into the community and give food to our neighbors. From 9am to 11am, volunteers hand out food boxes at 255 Dorothy Jordan Avenue in Gallatin.

Loving Our Neighbors

Every Wednesday a small group of volunteers goes out to the same location as the monthly food boxes in Gallatin to Love Our Neighbors. Each week people are provided with food bags, clothing items, hygiene items, prayer and so much more. This program is at their location from 9am to 11am.

grocery lists

Our food efforts are possible due to the generosity of others. We accept all kinds of canned goods and shelf stable items. Items not included on this list will be accepted and placed as bonus items! 

The first list is everything that is needed to build a food box. Food boxes are usually 40-50lbs of food and are given to families who are able to cook, refrigerate and have the means to open cans. These are given out at the monthly events, on Wednesdays as needed and when people come to the church in need of food.

The grocery list below is everything that is placed into food bags for the Loving Our Neighbors ministry. Food bags are given out each Wednesday to people who are experiencing instability in their living situation. This could be homelessness, couch surfing, moving or any number of situations. The Sumner Center @ NF also appreciate donations of hygiene products, feminine products, clothing and more to provide for our neighbors.

This program is meant to give immediate food relief to those in need, as well as continued assistance to create food stability.


The Food Drive-Through is a program run by John and Jackie Pasquarella. This amazing couple has a passion for creating food stability in our community.


There is also a food pantry located in The Sumner Center. This will be open throughout the week once construction is finished. 


Both of these programs require volunteers to operate. If you are interested in volunteering please sign up below.

Stay Warm Shelter

The Stay Warm Shelter is a program that runs during the colder months of the year to provide a warm and safe place for unhoused individuals to spend the night. The shelter also provides hot meals and bagged lunches to people lacking a stable home. NorthField Church currently works with seven other churches as well as the Gallatin Fire Department for this program.


The program is run by Deborah Alston through First Baptist Church Gallatin – Winchester Street, in conjunction with Unlimited Potential.
