Starting a Food Pantry

OVERVIEW
Whether it's an encounter with a homeless person begging for food, a stint volunteering at a soup kitchen, participation in a canned food drive, or just watching a commercial about children starving in a third-world country, most people have at least a basic understanding of the reality that people are going hungry—throughout the world, and even in the heart of a wealthy nation like the United States.

For a church that feels compelled or called to do its part to eradicate hunger, establishing a food pantry might be an effective way to make a difference.
