"As a group we wanted to provide the community a refreshing opportunity to come to the aid of the hungry in Allen County. All three of our organizations are seeing increased numbers of those seeking help, and we know that the people of Fort Wayne will respond generously when given the chance. We all take seriously God's call to feed the hungry, and we are looking forward to offering the community the chance to join us in our efforts," said Roger Reece, Executive Pastor of Associated Churches.
