"For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat..." Matthew 25:35
Feeding ministries are where most of our service is oriented. According to 2019 Census reporting, Watauga County's poverty rate is over 21%. It is estimated by our local service agencies that 1 out of every 4 students in Watauga County come from food insecure homes. With such great need in our own backyard, most of our feeding ministries are highly localized - focused on the families at our local school, while also participating in some ministries in the wider county as well. Below, you'll find out about some of them.
