From a government shutdown to the COVID-19 crisis — a mission to serve. Partnering to provide fresh meals and essential items to people in need.

Families in poverty who lost their daily wage jobs and income during the pandemic faced new worries, having trouble paying for school fees and supplies. And remote classes are a new hurdle because in many communities internet connections are unreliable and mobile devices are hard to come by.
