Our goal with the Hunger Initiative is to have an effective, powerful, and meaningful mission effort to serve those facing food insecurity locally and around the world.
UNDERSTAND | ENGAGE | DEVELOP | FOSTER
We seek to understand and engage more fully in current hunger initiatives with UCOM, Sulzbacher, and Hunger Fight. Participate in congregational education regarding hunger locally and globally. We will work to develop and foster a relationship with a global mission partner that focuses on a wholistic approach to hunger.
OUR COMMUNITY PARTNERS
United Community Outreach Ministry is an association of Southside churches who have come together to meet the needs of the community through food drives.
HAB partners with UCOM by volunteering at the food bank, conducting food drives, participating in meals on wheels program and local fundraising events.
CURRENT VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
UCOM is also always in need of volunteers to stock shelves and assist guests when they come for support. Another great way to serve is to volunteer one day a month to distribute MEALS ON WHEELS.
Bag Lunch Ministry Every day, members of our local homeless community come to the HAB office knowing that they will receive a kind word and a smile, and a bagged lunch. To learn more about this ministry, please call 904-396-7745.
