You must actively help the hungry and feed the oppressed. Then your light will dispel the darkness, and your darkness will be transformed into noonday. Isaiah 58:10
Feeding Families Ministry events took up an entire weekend in May. Many thanks to our donation supervisor Donald Chalk for his gift of time. Our dedicated volunteers prepped 75 survival bags for the needy and homeless. These survival bags were filled wit. drinks, food, clean socks, shirts, candy, pasta, cereal, milk and more. These bags provide nourishment and a little bit of hope and love. 65 bags went out to those in need. A special thanks to Donald, Kathy, John, and Chris. You guys are amazing!

Feeding the Homeless - 2015
Reaching out to those in need brings great blessings - for both our volunteers and the recipients who are the greatest in need in our community - the homeless! Tirelessly working to create special meals and outreach bags for those who are homeless in Stroudsburg.
Survival Bags for the Homeless
The Feeding Families Board of Directors distribute homeless survival bags to those in need the first Sunday of each month at the Stroudsburg United Methodist Church. Those in need receive a hot meal weekly from the dedicated volunteers at the Methodist Church and survival bags are distributed monthly by Feeding Families ministry. Bags include: Water, drinks, energy bars, socks, shirt, cookies, crackers, soup, stews and various other conveniences and hygiene products. Would you consider making a monthly gift so they can receive this desperately needed survival bag?
