san diego food bank

By December 11, 2008Church

LifePoint has become involved with the San Diego Food Bank. The food bank estimates that over 400,000 people in San Diego county will need food assistance at some point this year; of that number, over 100,000 of those will be under the age of 12. We did a small food drive at church, participated in the 5k Walk for the Hungry, and spent a few hours last Saturday sorting and boxing food at the warehouse. In 2009 we expect to become even more involved on a regular basis. It’s hard to believe that in a county as beautiful as San Diego that people go hungry but it’s true. When we were talking about ways of serving our community, it seemed that this was well in line with what Jesus himself did – feeding the hungry.
