Giving It Another Shot

Posted: October 11, 2011 in Uncategorized

Tuesday October 11, 2011 – First let me apologize for not writing anything since last spring.  Putting words to paper does not come easy to me, but with the help of my friend and editor, I’m giving it another shot.

The summer of 2010 has sped by at lightning speed and with each passing week presents a new challenge for Food for Children.  These troubling economic times and the growing number of people needing assistance throughout Manchester has brought  inspiration from God above.  One example was changing from one food distribution line to two on Saturday mornings.  We now setup two lines of tables and this helps service our friends with the blessings that local area businesses have provided.  Of course we needed to add additional  tables and volunteers also.  I have said that we are a “Just in time” ministry, “just when we need sometime God provides it at the appropriate time.”  More people brings more volunteers and more products to distribute.

The NH Food Bank has been bringing us a pallet of meat products for several weeks now.  This has truly been a blessing to all we serve.  Financially all this has been accomplish by the generosity and support of several churches and individuals faithfully giving to Food for Children. Thank You!

As for the people we serve, FFC has been providing donations of meat, wheat and sweet treats for over 200 families each week since the middle of June with an all time high of 345 served the last week of September.  Not one family has gone home empty handed.

The board and staff of Food For Children is grateful for all the volunteers, prayers and donations provided.  To God be the glory for all He has done.
