“Pray for the lives of your children who are hungry at every street corner.” –Prophet Jeremiah, Lamentations 2:19
The Love Pantry program started in 2011 to provide struggling families and hungry children with an emergency food supply directly through public schools. Focusing on removing hunger as a barrier to learning of school-aged children, the goal is two-fold: to meet the immediate need of food for the students and their families, and to move the families toward longer-term solutions.
