Warehouse Ministries

Tino Suffi

Compassion in Action!

In his book, The Way In Is The Way On;, John Wimber (founder of the Vineyard Movement) states that our responsibility to the poor was etched into our spirits right from the beginning as the Lord made it a personal issue with us in the Vineyard. The Vineyard began feeding and clothing those in need in the late 1980’s. What started out with a couple emptying out their own cupboard and closets for those in a park nearby has evolved and changed over the years to what we do now. We offer a number of programs to serve and help people that are going through difficult times. For example we process, on average, over 150,000 lbs. of food monthly, pack the equivalent of over 9000 bags of groceries monthly as well as 9000 bags of beans and rice. We are the largest Food Distribution Agency for Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.

Homeless Ministry

A group meets at the Vineyard CIA facility in Anaheim to assemble packages of food and clothes to take to the homeless in Orange County.
Around 7:00pm the group goes out on a routine journey to locations that comprise six stops, visiting a total of 50 to 60 homeless people living on the streets of Buena Park, Fullerton and Anaheim.

Along with food and clothes, each week the ministry delivers a biblical message to the homeless. 
We’ve taken the time to get to know the people that we visit with each week. This tends to establish credibility and helps to pave the way to Christ and a path off of the streets if they so desire. 

Along with food, clothes and hygiene items the ministry carries a list of facilities and shelters available for every homeless circumstance. This includes places that help with drug and alcohol dependency as well as ones that help those that have simply undergone financial difficulties from job loss or bankruptcy.

 Every Wednesday at 6:00pm (excluding Christmas and Thanksgiving)



Lunches are prepared at the warehouse in the morning from approximately 9am to 11am. The lunches are picked up that evening and loaded into our van for transport to the First Christian Church in Fullerton (Wilshire & Harbor). This church hosts a dinner and we hand out a bagged lunch to those who come to take with them for the next day. As always, prayer is available for any who are willing to receive it. Want to serve at the Fullerton Outreach? Please fill out an interest form (Click here). 

On the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month, from 5:00 - 7:00pm.
