|Über uns||EL Shaddai Christian Ministries (ESCM) through The Empowerment Center engages services to the neediest members of society to include the Winning The War Against Hunger Project.|
|Mission||Our mission is to win the war against hunger by reducing the number of hungry children and starving individuals who struggle with hunger.|
Our mission is to win the war against hunger by reducing the number of hungry children and starving individuals who struggle with hunger. Each year the need is intensifying. As of 2014, 1 in 5 children live in homes that struggle with hunger in Washington State, which increased from 1 in 6 at the end of 2012. Currently, 1 in 7 seniors face hunger and 1 in 6 individuals rely on SNAP (Food Stamps) which funding has been decreased due to budget cuts.
The need for food is critical now and threatening to become more intensely severe without aggressive action, since JBLM has announced a plan to downsize by 1,200 troops and civilian personnel.
WWAHP is totally funded by donations from individuals and our partner nonprofit organizations who receive food donations for their feeding programs. At full funding we have the capacity to divert good wholesome food away from the sanitary landfill to the table of more than 700 families per week through our network of community based nonprofit organizations.
Currently we are operating at less than 50% of our capacity, but in position to provide more food to more starving children and individuals. But we need your help. To maintain our current level of intervention and expand to meet the rapidly growing need for food, we need your financial support. NO CONTRIBUTION IS TOO SMALL AND ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE. However:
$5.00 will feed a family of 5 for 5 days.
