Winning the War Against Hunger Project

 

 

El Shaddai Christian Ministries (ESCM) through The Empowerment Center engages in other services to the neediest members of society to include the WINNING THE WAR AGAINST HUNGER PROJECT (WWAHP).  The purpose of this project is to provide 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, and through our food bank internally. 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 tons of wholesome food each year away from sanitary land fills to the tables of people who would otherwise go hungry.  To learn more about The Empowerment Center and WWAHP, go to the Homepage and click on WWAHP on the left and check out WWAHP on Facebook.

Our mission is to win the war against hunger by reducing the number of hungry children and starving individuals who struggle with hunger. Each year the need is intensifying. Currently, 1 in 5 children live in homes that struggle with hunger in Washington State, which decreased from 1 in 6 at the end of 2012. Currently, 1 in 7 seniors face hunger and 1 in 7 individuals rely on SNAPS (Food Stamps) which funding has been decreased.

The need for food is critical now and threatening to become more intensely severe without aggressive action, since JBLM has announced a plan to downsize by 1,200 troops and civilian personnel.

WWAHP is totally funded by donations from individuals and our partner nonprofit organizations who receive food donations for their feeding programs. At full funding we have the capacity to divert good wholesome food away from the sanitary landfill to the table of more than 700 families per week through our network of community based nonprofit organizations.

Please give serious consideration to supporting  the future efforts of WWAHP, the follow up efforts of The NOE Network, and/ or The Holiday Giving Program by becoming a partner on a one time or monthly basis. No amount is too small.
