Communities working to ease the pain and fear of food instability were impacted significantly in the era of Coronavirus.  Here are some brief reflections on some of the work being done.

“We are extremely grateful for this grant. Your support will allow our food pantry to serve others more fresh produce at a critical time to ensure healthy eating.  This news helps us financially and spiritually to continue to do more.” — Teryl Cartwright

“This grant will further alleviate hunger throughout Perry County.” — Bob Yankovitz

“This is great news!– (the ILAG) are very grateful, as it is so needed for food right now in these Lutheran communities.” — Rev. Jennifer Hope Tringali

Thank you for your work and commitment to feeding the hungry in our synod and around the world.  We pray every blessing on the ministries assisted by these grants.
