There is a wonderful children’s school in the little town of Muleete, Uganda. Muleete village is like an oasis in the middle of the surrounding poor countryside, but its children are some of the happiest we’ve ever seen. They don’t know what they don’t have. Especially when it comes to nourishing food cooked in a healthy environment. The school has reached out to us for help in renovating their small, dilapidated kitchen into something not only the school can use to serve lunches, but the community can use as a whole. Look how far our American dollars will go over there. The goal is a mere $6,978. Want to Skip something and help?

Sitio Veteran's Kitchen: Philippines

We have collected $7,527.50 of our $5,100.00 target. It is 147.60% of our goal for the Sitio Veterans Kitchen: Philippines project

Here is a school of 132 children, from preschool through 10th Grade. 80% of them are (luckily) under an educational sponsorship program. This project will repair and renovate the existing kitchen and home economics laboratory via the purchase of a new oven, refrigerator, construction of a sterile food preparation counter, new kitchen plumbing and sanitary lines, and new flooring. How much would this cost in the states? More than we would want to ask for. But in this section of the Philippines, $5,100 is all that’s needed to turn a useless kitchen into a productive, sustaining, healthy kitchen. Even $10 from you will make a major impact. Fun to think of, huh?

Project Bayview Feeding Program: San Francisco

Yes, we certainly do help out right here at home in the US when it makes sense, and this is one opportunity we wanted to jump in on. When people are coming out of difficult and complex situations in their lives, Project Bayview is there to help by providing a loving and supportive community around them. Project Bayview's mission is to develop leaders who live to revive their communities. They offer instant brotherhood, leadership development, mentorship, housing, career development, work, and fun. But these people need to eat. And it’s a bit more expensive in the states than other places. There are currently 16 people at Bayview who need to be fed and currently have no funding or support for food. $3,200 will feed all 16 of them for a month. That’s about $6.50 per day per person. We’d like to offer them 6 months of really healthy food they can count on. That’s about $19,200. Want to help?

Ascencia Feeding Program: Glendale

We have collected $5,634.00 of our $9,050.00 target. It is 62.25% of our goal for the Ascencia Feeding Program: Glendale project

Here’s another local American community need we just couldn’t pass up. Ascencia has provided housing and services to homeless individuals and families in the Glendale, CA community for the past nine years. Today, Ascencia is the only comprehensive homeless services agency to provide over 1,200 underserved adults, children, and seniors daily with street outreach, case management, mental health counseling, and trauma therapy. Last year, they served nearly an equal number of children (214) as they did seniors (201). Ascencia’s year-round 40-bed emergency housing program provides safe and supported shelter for over 200 residents every year. It is unique among shelters in that they serve families and single adults, including seniors, together. And, just like other homeless care centers, they run out of money quickly, especially for decent meals. They’ve asked us for $9,050 to cover 6 month of meals for 200 residents. We know one of the best tools these people can be given is a healthy body that offers them the energy and focus they need to change their lives. That’s why we’re happy to help fuel their future. It’s by the grace of God that each of us isn’t in their situation, so we want to help. Do you?
