September is National Hunger Action Month. A time devoted to bringing awareness to food insecurity and the ability for individuals like you to take action in their community.
We are witnessing daily the real problem of inflation, causing families to decide whether they should put food on the table or pay rent. It is affecting everyone-children and seniors, our community's most vulnerable.
More and more families seek food pantries like Servant's Heart Ministry for survival.
The good news is there is a solution.
You can help this September by partnering with us in one of our four needs.

Servant's Heart Ministry values the community we serve and recognize that only providing hunger solutions can not solve the problem of poverty. At our core, we believe in empowering lives. We encourage individuals to see themselves as more than their current circumstances. This belief begins with an individual recognizing that there is something greater than themselves. So everything we do is to point people to the love of Christ. We believe it is through the heart-transforming love of Christ that people will be lifted from their difficulties, set on a solid foundation, and become all that God has called them to be.
