MISSION

Our mission is to help lighten the burden of food insecurity in our community. It is our intention that they receive not only food each week for their physical hunger, but kindness and grace to feed their spiritual and emotional needs.

We believe the words of Jesus that this is one way we can respond directly to God’s love for us: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.” – Matthew 25:35
