"When did we see you hungry, Lord?"
Hunger is not just a Third World problem. Hunger does not discriminate. Young and elderly, black and white, male and female… the many faces of hunger are different, but the pain and the need are the same. For thousands in our community, hunger is one of life’s daily realities.
ECS has provided more than 1 million meals to hungry and homeless people in the Kansas City area.
Through Episcopal Community Services, a cooperative network of anti-hunger ministries offered by many parishes within the Episcopal Diocese of West Missouri and the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas, the Episcopal Church serves more than 750,000 meals each year to the homeless and working poor in our community. Here are some of the programs that are thriving with volunteer help and financial support from people like you.
