Our Mission is to meet the needs of the people by alleviating hunger in our community and by
sharing food with compassion.

They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more…

Words to Ponder:

Happiness adds and multiplies as you divide it with others.
Giving never moves in a straight line…
it always moves in circles.
