Fighting hunger in inner city Houston in Jesus’ name
When a client comes to one of our sites, we are committed to showing love, grace and hospitality to ensure they have what is needed. In fact, for our homebound residents, we personally deliver groceries and provide encouragement to them regularly.
Not everyone eats the same thing. We want to provide every person with the dignity to choose their own food items to take home, just like when you go to the supermarket.
Some people are not able to physically come to our pantries. That’s why we offer biweekly deliveries of groceries to senior adults and residents.
For those people without an address, we provide a weekly hot meal, to-go bag of food and toiletries, fresh clothing and the love of Jesus.
Emergency food assistance
So much uncertainty surrounds times of disasters or pandemics. To help with that, our centers are transformed into emergency food distribution sites.
We follow the example of Jesus Christ in Matthew 25:35-36
“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, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
