Food For The Poor’s mission is to link the church of the First World with the church of the Third World in a manner that helps both the materially poor and the poor in spirit.
The materially poor are served by local churches, clergy and lay leaders who have been empowered and supplied with goods by Food For The Poor. The poor in spirit are renewed by their relationship with and service to the poor through our direct ministry of teaching, encouragement and prayer. Ultimately, they seek to bring both benefactors and recipients to a closer union with our Lord. The ministry is a reflection of our Lord’s unconditional love – a love that surrenders all, that inspires trust and faith, and that embraces all people, regardless of race, status or creed. It is also shaped by our belief that Christ is alive and can be served directly by serving those in greatest need. (Matthew 25:40)
Food For The Poor has teamed with HCC for the following purpose of:
1.Feed 20 children for a year @ $43.80 per meal; total coast: $876
