"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink" ... In truth I tell you, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me." {NJB Matthew 25:35,40}

Food Banks need your support - all supermarkets have containers set aside for us to follow the Lord's commands to help others in their time of need.
