With nearly 1 in 7 people in America living in poverty, the need is so great.
Somewhere in the U.S. tonight, a child will go to bed hungry. And she'll wake up tomorrow unsure of when her next meal will come. She'll have a hard time concentrating in school and her future will seem so uncertain.

And sadly, she's not alone. Nearly 16 million children face hunger every single year.

But together we can make a difference.  Please consider donating cans of coffee, creamer & sugar, paper plates and cups to be used at our feeding sites.  Items may be dropped off at 1009 Hewett Rd., or call us @ 842-2711 for pickup.
