Welcome to Food Forward, an initiative of Crossroads International Church!
We are a community who loves God and loves people and sharing food together is one of our favourite things to do. Whether it is a whole community or with families, friends, neighbours it is always a special time together.
If you have reached this website, it means that you have come by one of our Food Forward oven dishes. We sincerely hope you received it filled with something delicious and that you had a chance to chat with the person who gave it to you. Or maybe you found it somewhere, like a Kringloopwinkel, and scanned the QR code out of curiosity!
Either way, during these “Corona Times,” sharing a meal together outside of our homes has become a challenge, but is so much more important than ever as loneliness and seclusion become commonplace in our communities. Through this initiative, we want to bring cheer and connection back by sharing food in a way that is Corona-proof, flexible and ongoing.
So, when you have a moment, make or bake something delicious in the dish and share it with someone who is lonely or isolated. If you’re not a maker or a baker, then just put in a recipe and some ingredients for it in the dish. When you are delivering it, take a moment to sit down and chat or for someone who is ill, just leave it at their door. The dish stays with them to Food Forward it again.
We pray and trust that you were blessed by what you received and that you will have as much pleasure in Food Forwarding as we did in forwarding food to you!
