Purpose:

To support churches in caring for the needs of people who are hungry by providing education, resources, and opportunities for collaboration.

Impact:

Since its inception, Hunger Ministry at the WRBA has made a unique mark in the community by not only supporting local church-based hunger ministry, but by connecting churches to one another and with other organizations in order to have a greater impact on hunger within the community. WRBA church hunger ministries include:

  • Community Gardens
  • Food Pantries
  • Summer Meals for Children
  • School Backpack Programs
  • Advocacy and Letter-Writing Campaigns
  • Community Meals
  • And more! 

What we do:

We help churches build on their capacity, encourage regular planning and evaluation, and provide resources, training and opportunities for collaboration. We hope to support churches in creating and sustaining healthy hunger alleviation ministries that provide relief for today and hope for tomorrow.

Specific initiative:

Since 2015, Hunger Ministry at the WRBA has been responding specifically to senior hunger through the Senior SNAP Outreach Internship. Seniors have been identified locally and nationally as a population particularly vulnerable for food insecurity. For seniors, the health implications of food insecurity are far reaching.
