NAMB’s Hunger Relief Ministry assists churches, associations, and state conventions, so that in the process of distributing food, the Gospel can be shared with people in need. By meeting someoneís physical needs, opportunities are created to address their spiritual needs.
Domestic Hunger Fund - Feeding the Hungry in North America
The Ministry & Servant Evangelism Unit administers the Domestic Hunger Fund program. It is important to remember that every dollar is utilized exclusively to feed the hungry. Hunger funds cannot be used to cover any administrative costs. Monies are distributed quarterly to hunger ministries throughout North America. In 2009, more than $1.2 million was provided to 2,200 hunger ministries. Also, 4.6 million meals were provided with Domestic Hunger Funds and over 36,000 professions of faith were reported through hunger ministries in North America.
These ministries have been accomplished in large measure thanks to the prayers and financial giving of many thousands of persons to the Hunger Fund
In West Virginia hunger is an everyday battle for many families. We have several churches involved in offering hope through distribution of food and other hunger related projects. If your church is considering beginning a hunger ministry and would like to speak with someone in our state office, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
