Tomorrow (Saturday, May 9) there will be a national food drive called Stamp Out Hunger. All you have to do is put nonperishable food items in a bag and place the bag of food by your mailbox. Your mail carrier will pick up the food and distribute it to local food banks.
This is a great opportunity to go through your pantry and clean out items that you have stockpiled. There are so many people today who are dependent upon food banks for their meals. Let us be mindful of these people and share with them what the Lord has so graciously blessed us.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’ ” Matthew 25:35-40
