The Feeding Families Ministry volunteers work tirelessly to raise funds throughout the year so that families can keep food on their tables through difficult economic times. View our gallery below of some of the fundraising events from the past year to recent. The Spring Festival in Mount Pocono, Boy Scouts fundraisers, feeding hungry travelers on a holiday weekend at a rest stop on Interstate 80, and a holiday event hosted by the Speakeasy Lounge at the Carriage House- we invite you to be a part of our Feeding Families Ministry. You will find not only a God-given purpose of helping others in need, but a volunteer family who supports and encourages each other every day!
"Christ has no body on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours. Yours are
the eyes through which Christ's compassion for the world is to look out; yours
are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands
with which He is to bless us now."
~Saint Teresa of Avila
Summer 2016: 2016 brought Feeding Families Ministry Inc. into a new chapter of this growing ministry. Despite the loss of her husband and best friend Bill, Diane continues in her tireless dedication to helping others in her community. With the loss of their ministry site looming within a 60 day deadline, Diane and her small team of volunteers have not been swayed in their faith in God's leading and mission to feed the hungry. These dedicated volunteers spent their July 4th holiday weekend at a rest stop on I-80 to feed hungry travelers and collect donations to be able to continue feeding hungry families in 2016.
December 2015: There are many wonderful people and organizations in our community who never cease to amaze us with their generosity in helping those in need! The Pocono Mountain Visitors Bureau collected over $300 at their member holiday dinner and donated it to the outreach ministries of Feeding Families Ministry. The picture below is of Nicole Krueger, VP of Human Resources at the Pocono Mountain Visitors Bureau with our founder and director Diane McFadzean.
And we want to send a special hank you to our young people who have a heart for those in need this December! Maia Gilbes in the photo organized a collection of 65 boxes of cereal at her dance school, Diamond Academy and the Tobyhanna Library. This collection of cereal boxes was shared with Feeding Families Ministry and the Ecumenical Hunger Ministry. Way to go Maia! Thank you for remembering those in need in your community. We are proud of you!
July 2015: Feeding Families Ministry hosted a dinner for the homeless and poor of Stroudsburg. We served spiral sliced ham, fresh mashed potatoes, peas and carrots, rolls, salad and pound cake with fresh strawberries. God bless these volunteers for giving up the perfect day and working in the heat. Satan tried hard to deter these dedicated volunteers, but light prevailed. It was a fantastic experience for everyone. May God bless the meek.
December 6, 2015: Dedicated volunteers served a delicious ham dinner to more than 50 guests. Feeding Families Ministry is fighting hunger every day. We invite you to help us make a difference in our communities!
