"OneHarvest is a nondenominational, faith-based organization that is committed to helping American families," according to the website at OneHarvest.com.
"We offer affordable, pre-paid, pre-packaged, high quality food boxes. Our quality standard is based on a simple question: If Christ were sitting at our table, would we be proud to serve Him our food?"
Regardless of income level with no applications to submit, anyone may order as many food boxes as they want with costs ranging from $20 to $46 per box.
Founded in June 2010 with the ministry based in Loganville, Gwinnett County, OneHarvest has expanded through the southeast, east coast and midwest.
Billy Lawhon and Scott Crowe serve on the board of directors, also according to the OneHarvest website.
A retired U.S. Army veteran, Lawhon is an elder and board member of Royal Diadem Tabernacle.
Crowe is the Youth Life pastor at Buford Church of God.
