Food From the Heart

This is a sack lunch assistance ministry committed to providing free meals for children at-risk of going hungry during weekends and extended school holidays. We currently partner with Red Duke Elementary, Pomona Elementary, Wilder Elementary and York Elementary.  


"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

"Truly I tell you whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine you did for me."

Matthew 25:40 NIV
