Hunger Action Team
The Hunger Action Team in partnership with the Presbyterian Hunger Program assists congregations in addressing the problem of hunger in our communities.
Matthew 25 Hunger Fund
The Matthew 25 Hunger Fund provides direct aid to bring relief to families and individuals who are in desperate trouble. Often because of illness, death, loss of jobs, separation or divorce, families face losing utilities or shelter. A timely payment can bring relief and time to work out deeper problems. Funds are distributed to area agencies or by the presbytery through the ministry of the Hunger Action Enabler. Requests also come from the United Way, utility companies, and churches. Each case is carefully evaluated and much effort is expended to find appropriate community resources to meet the specific need. Some funds are also used for development assistance, lifestyle integrity, public policy advocacy, and education.
Two Cents A Meal
Two Cents a Meal is a program of the presbytery that provides funds for baby formula and food for our youngest and most vulnerable citizens. Contributions to centers for low income babies throughout the presbytery help mothers provide for their at-risk babies.
Good Samaritan Fund
The Good Samaritan Fund is a program of the presbytery that aids persons in times of emergency. These emergencies do not conform to the guidelines of Matthew 25 or Two Cents a Meal.
Make tax-deductable gifts to these Hunger Funds payable to the Presbytery of Giddings Lovejoy designated for the Matthew 25 Fund, Two Cents a Meal, or The Good Samaritan Fund.
