Testimonials

"It's heartbreaking when you see the numbers of those in need, and just how many people would go hungry without the help of Feed My People, especially when it comes to children and the elderly. The need for help continues to grow, and the facility needs to expand in order to keep up with the good work they do."

"Every week when I help get the bags out for the Weekend Kids' Meal program, I think about a friend whose daughter brings her bag home every week and can't wait to see the food inside. Peanut butter is her favorite. We have to keep doing what we're doing. People are struggling and everyone needs to eat, especially kids."
