Because of God’s Grace (Bogg) Ministries is a non-profit organization that was started to help provide the people of Miamisburg, Ohio and the greater Dayton area, with food, clothing, and other essentials to sustain a healthy lifestyle and to love people so they know that God loves them.
We want to come alongside people offering loving support and assistance with social, emotional, and physical needs. It’s our goal to bring the church out into the world, and not to be restricted to a building. We believe it’s time for local churches to unite and become the expression of God’s love to those who are hurting and need it most.
Bogg began in 2010 when 2 guys named Jason saw a need in Dayton that wasn’t being met in a big enough way. Food assistance is one of the most often overlooked issues in cities like Dayton, because it isn’t always obvious at a first glance. What we see are folks working hard, living in communities just like any other; but when you look inside those homes, you see a different story. Many families struggle to put food on the table on a regular basis when they have worries like utility bills, transportation costs, and sometimes trouble finding steady work.
From this realization came Bogg; Because of God’s Grace Ministries. Bogg has moved from feeding 4 families a week, to over 2,000 people a month throughout the Dayton area. Food provided is distributed through mobile food pantries called Mobile Meals. These events occur at scheduled times and places each month, and there are no requirements for anyone to receive free food items. Anyone who comes out will be given a weeks’ worth of groceries and a hot meal while they are there. How do we do it? We partner with the Dayton Foodbank, and receive all of our food at a discounted price per pound, allowing us to give all that we purchase away for free. We are 100% donation funded, and work to find new and interesting ways to raise money to better our organization.
