Our board and staff have a passion to help people struggling with hunger, poverty and homelessness.

Together, we bring more than 250 of years of experience and expertise in Nonprofit Management, Leadership, Business, Education, Theology, Psychology, Law, Culinary Arts, Employment Services, Logistics, Transportation, Development, Sales, Communications and Marketing.

If we could have our way, we would go out of business because we are not needed, because all of our neighbors have plenty of food to eat, gainful employment and a home of their own.

Until that day comes, we will continue to Feed, Clothe and Empower.
