FEMA donates 12K meals Visible Hope

Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless.
Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help.

Isaiah 58:7

Providing delicious nutritious meals to our community’s most vulnerable citizens is nothing new for Visible Hope. Too many people living in poverty have a diet of processed foods and rarely get a hot meal. Together we can change that. Currently we prepare, serve and deliver more than 500+ hot meals every month throughout Huntsville, Alabama. Twice a month we provide healthy meals to those less fortunate in two of the most low-income and underserved areas of our community. About 30% of the people we feed are children and the numbers are increasing. In the upcoming years we’re looking to partner with more schools, churches, after school programs, libraries, and other community organizations who serve kids.

On June 15, 2018, FEMA recognized the great efforts that Visible Hope has made and continue to make in the community and the impact it has made over the years through their feeding program, clothing ministry, backpacks & school supply drives for less fortunate kids and a host of other programs that surrounds those that are less fortunate. We received over 12K meals to distribute to those in need in Huntsville, Alabama and surrounding areas. Everyone from the working poor to the homeless has received an unlimited amount of food boxes.

Founder, Dell Mitchell says: By receiving these food boxes the organization is able to distribute food to people he didn’t think existed. Furthermore, he never leaves the house without loading his van with food boxes to give to anyone that ask, when he’s out cruising the city checking on the homeless throughout the day. It just feels so good inside to be able to help those less fortunate, especially when you have the resources to do so.

Visible Hope accepts no salary for their works and 100% of donations are used to fuel their mission for projects within the organization.

 

“These boxes are going to make such a great difference in the community and I just, I’m just so happy that my family will get a chance to receive some,” Janice Hobbs, New Market, Alabama

“It just feels good being able to give kids food when sometimes if they don’t have it.” Volunteer

The meals are already making a big difference in the lives of children at local daycares in the city. Patty Coleman: Athens, Alabama
