Rush Creek Church has operated this ministry to provide food relief for those in emergency need since December 2009. Our focus is to provide temporary help to families who may find themselves overwhelmed or under-resourced. We strive to help these families improve upon their current situation by providing “daily bread” so that they might focus their limited income on things other than meals. Families in need of relief may receive assistance by having the head of household complete a simple application. Upon each visit, photo identification and proof of address must be presented.
Food and monetary donations are much appreciated and may be tax deductible.
