Food for Thought is not just about solving hunger... it is about building relationships!

Food For Thought's purpose is to be a gateway between poverty and prosperity.

Food For Thought's mission is to serve those in various needs despite their position in order to develop relationships that aid in reconciliation and redemption.

Food For Thought's vision is that everyone realizes their worth through serving others.

We are an organization of people who care about others and want to help those in need. We believe serving can change both those who are served and those who are serving. And we believe anyone can serve. In fact, we often see generous, selfless behavior from our friends on the street helping each other. It's getting to see that compassion, seeing people opening up and sharing their stories, seeing them realize they still matter in the world, and seeing them start to take steps to change their lives... all this has changed us, too, and we love it.

Our focus will be, as always, on developing relationships instead of just having activities. We want Food For Thought to be used as a tool to bring communities together, to help those around them.

What We Do:
Food For Thought feeds over 1,300 families each month through its pantries as well as 350 unhoused individuals each weekend. We work hard to provide quality food and positive interactions with those experiencing extreme poverty.

Food For Thought's current staff of one full time employee and one part-time employee would definitely not be able to accomplish this on their own! Without volunteer help, we would not be able to make this happen. In 2009, Food For Thought volunteers put in over 29,000 hours of work to help us accomplish our mission.

Six days a week, Food For Thought is working hard to offer to everyone we meet a free lunch and much more... including a friend to talk to.
