In addition to the backpack ministry, a number of our members are involved in Weekday Tutoring, Saturday Academy, and Summer Fun Book Club.

The H2H ministry embraces a holistic approach to community development. We are partnering with the leaders in the Ashley Elementary area to empower and build up existing assets and strengthen collaboration initiatives. We have begun ministries which  include community gardening, raising sustainability and hunger awareness, community leadership training, and developing working relationships with various churches and entities to meet physical and spiritual needs around us.

The name “From Hunger 2 Health” depicts our mission to reach people for Christ through life-changing relationships by first meeting their physical needs. We covenant to be a Gospel-centered ministry in responding to God’s call to go out and love our neighbors.
