WWAHP

The WINNING THE WAR AGAINST HUNGER PROJECT (WWAHP) provides food to the working poor, needy families, senior citizens and individuals, some of whom are homeless.

This is accomplished through our distribution  network to other organizations externally, our food bank internally and our newly established Community Distribution Network (CDN), small independent groups who take food to the homeless, The program is operated by a 100% volunteer staff who are encouraged to take free groceries home every time they serve. Many unemployed, under employed, and disabled individuals secure employment through the work experience and training that they gain from their volunteer experience in The Food Distribution Ministry (FDM).

Through our operations we are able to redirect thousands of ton of wholesome food each year away from sanitary land fills to the tables of people who would otherwise go hungry.


THE HOLIDAY MEALS PROGRAMS:

The Holiday Meals Program serves the neediest families in targeted public schools providing them with an elaborate Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinner Meals that includes everything for an elaborate holiday weekend.

CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR TEENS:

Our newest holiday focus is on providing Christmas gifts for teens ages13-19, since most programs that target needy children at Christmas, stop at age 12 years old leaving older siblings with little or nothing.

Teens identified through our internal food ministry, schools and social service programs receive an invitation to attend a Party and  shop in a free Holiday Bazaar to select gifts for themselves and the entire family plus decorations, furniture, clothing and household goods.  Teens must be accompanied by a parent who shops for the teen. Then gifts are pre-wrapped and sent home with the parent to include in the families holiday celebration.

THE NOE NETWORK

This year we have extended our focus for ministry through our NOE Network to single teen moms and their children by offering a number of projects and activities to build hope, dignity and a pathway out of poverty for them and their children. Feel free to email us at escmtacoma@gmail.com for more information about The NOE Network and to learn how you can get involved with our goal of helping these young moms become overcomers.
