Feed the Hope Announces Project To Help End Hunger In Vulnerable Communities Throughout the Northeast
Feed the Hope (the “Organization”), a coalition comprised of twelve churches throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and Delaware, are sponsoring the distribution of free food for inner-city communities throughout the region.
The event will be held on November 21, 2020, and will distribute approximately 500,000 pounds of nutritious food throughout the Northeastern region.
“Our goal is not political or social. We are a group of unified churches who desire to infuse the hope of Jesus into at-risk communities with a gift of food,” said Mark English, Lead Pastor of Christian Life Center, a missionary-focused and outreach-based church located in the Greater Philadelphia Area.
“Churches have a mandate in God’s Word, Acts 2:10, to be vehicles of reconciliation. We have decided to lock-arms with other like-minded churches and become agents of change in our communities. Food distribution is just the beginning.”
The coalition will partner to distribute the food at over 12 sites across four states. The group used demographic data to select underserved and at-risk communities, including Philadelphia, Trenton, Brooklyn, and Dover, to name a few. To impact as many in need as possible this holiday season, Feed the Hope coalition continues to accept monetary contributions for hurting communities. Locations will begin distributing food at 10:00 AM on November 21, 2020.
Distribution sites will distribute 1,000 boxes of food weighing 40 pounds each. Feed the Hope boxes will include both perishable and non-perishable items just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.
