Why? Why do we do what we do?

Please let me share some basic facts concerning hunger and our nutritional food program.

  • 50.2 million American (up from 35.5 million) including 17.2 million children, are hungry, do not have enough to eat on a regular basis, or don’t have the money or assistance to get enough food to maintain active, healthy lives.
  • More than 16 million children in America are at risk of hunger; that’s more than 1 in 5.
  • 30 percent of households with seniors indicated that they have had to choose between food and medical care and 35 percent had to choose between food and paying for heat/utilities.
  • Veterans are more than twice as likely to need help with food.

We believe the local church is the bridge that we need to cross to reach into our local communities. We have experienced over the past 14 years the results of hunger, and lack of nutritional food for our children and their families. We have heard of the children going without food due to the drug epidemic in the state of Pennsylvania. Children have to steal cereal and eat it in the closets at school because the parents spend all their money on drugs.

We have had approximately 30 friends in the past year that have died in our area, many due to drugs.

A person with a experience is never at the mercy of one who has a argument. We have experienced the benefits of bringing these people into a good solid local church and supplying them with good nutritional food. We feed families who otherwise would go hungry.

Why, so people can once again experience the unconditional Love and support that many of them need.
