Words from a Partner Agency
Feed My People partners with over 120 partner agencies to provide food to those who struggle with hunger. Their compassionate response to those they serve is inspiring! An area food pantry recently shared these highlights from one of their open pantries.
It was a good day.
- We had a new mommy with a three day old daughter.
- A homeless couple; I asked if they had gotten enough of the kind of food that they could use and they gave me their "thank you for caring" smile. They live in a tent.
- An elderly woman, who told me a couple of weeks ago that she was going to have cancer surgery, anxiously and excitedly told me she had her surgery. I asked how she was doing and she told me she was doing well. I expressed my happiness and told her she had made my day. She was so enthused. A kind word and a genuine smile truly made her day also.
Feed My People is proud to partner with many in community to provide hope for a brighter future.
