There are hungry people in our neighbourhoods. Many live in homes. Some are young. Some are elderly. A few live on the street. Some are but a tough break away from missing a meal. But the reasons matter little. When a person needs a break and a warm meal they should be able to find one.

The needs are apparent as news in our local papers suggest. A few articles are posted below.

If you would like to send a donation by PayPal, please select the donate button below.  Thank you for considering.
