In July, nearly 30 million Americans told the Census Bureau they didn't have enough to eat. As the COVID-19 pandemic wears on, new estimates point to some of the worst rates of food insecurity in the United States in years. A recent Northwestern study found that food insecurity among households with children has more than tripled to 29.5%. School lunch programs were already struggling to meet rising demand before the pandemic. With COVID-19 now keeping children out of school, many don't have access to school lunches at all.

Care for the hungry in our community with the Food Pantry Team!

You can make an impact by providing much-needed food and essentials through the Christ Church Food Drive, which will supply the Salvation Army/Christ Church Food Pantry ministry. In addition to ministering to clients' physical needs each month, the Food Pantry team provides spiritual and emotional support by distributing Bibles and other Christian materials — and praying personally with the clients.
