This past January, we were approached by Hope for Hunger Food Bank in Glendale with the possibility of taking over their outreach – providing groceries, bread, fresh vegetables, meat and dairy to men, women, and children who need them most. After much prayer and deliberation, Phoenix Rescue Mission is proud to announce that we have decided to accept the offer and continue the good work Hope for Hunger has started! “This operation will greatly expand our anti-poverty ministry outreach and give us a base of ministry operations in Glendale,” says our President and CEO Jay A. Cory. Currently, Hope for Hunger serves 100 families a day, Monday through Thursday every week. Providing groceries offsets the cost of food allowing families on the edge of homelessness relief. Going forward, these individuals and families will also have the opportunity to connect with a bevy of Phoenix Rescue Mission services designed to break them out of the cycle of poverty and get them back on their feet! We’re excited to be able to reach out and offer hope to hurting families in a whole new way – and it’s all because of friends like you who make it possible!
