Kentucky Church Ministry Offering Free Food Boxes For Families In Need – EXPIRED
STEPPING UP TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE IS FED
Unless you have actually ever experienced the thought or question of where your next meal is coming from you couldn't possibly understand how awful it is. No one should ever have to go through this pain or wonder about eating but unfortunately, it is a reality. Thankfully, we have several organizations and ministries that step up to help our community when they are in need.
