To the Editor:

Keizer Hunger Ministry yesterday and today is ever so visible. The current efforts are taxing all of our resources. During my over eight years of calls to feed the hungry, the unity of over 100 faithful, energized volunteers has been what makes the Keizer Community Food Bank successful. Each of these volunteers has generated a grand hands-on, loving dedication. As we outgrew the original space at John Knox Presbyterian Church, the need is now met at Faith Lutheran Church with the Monday evening and Thursday morning openings.

As the program manager for the last few years, I am most grateful for operational leadership and support plus the joy of all the interactions. It is a pleasure to regularly witness the donation of time, effort, resources and extension of new friendships.

A huge thank you goes to the businesses, service clubs, individual community members and volunteers who work together to meet the challenge of Matthew 25:35: “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you welcomed me. . . .”
