For those engaged in the fight against hunger, circumstances almost always seem bleak. Meeting the needs of countless families facing food insecurity is rightly understood to be a virtually impossible task.
So where does the willingness to keep fighting, serving and loving the mission come from? It comes from HOPE.
We believe because of hope.
We take risks because of hope.
We never ever consider the option to quit. Yes, because of hope.
But this kind of hope is far from ordinary. When hope is maintained in the face of insurmountable odds, it becomes audacious.
Some simply accept the realities of food insecurity and choose to place their priorities elsewhere.
Others make the bold decision to face the fight against hunger head-on, dream beyond the barriers and embrace the audacity to hope.
As a friend of the food bank, you are unquestionably among the latter.
We want you to know that Matthew’s Crossing Food Bank will never give up, give in or retreat. Our mission is clear and our resolve is stronger than ever.
The audacity to hope speaks to the very core of who we are: We exist to serve our neighbors in need with compassion, so they can preserve their dignity and have hope for a happier and healthier future.
