  •      Could you help feed 50,000 people?  You're probably thinking, "No way!"  What if I told you that you could help feed 50,000 people - and that it would be easy for you to help!

    James Poe in the kitchen prepping hams     James and the 50,000 Meal Challenge

         If you've ever been to our Shepura Men's Center then you've probably already met James Poe (or Jimmy, as many call him).  James works in the kitchen at our Men's Center.  When you donate to provide meals, those funds give James and his helpers the tools they need to buy, cook and serve all those meals.

         "We'll start preparing for Easter about two weeks in advance," said James.  "We'll see what donated food items we have, what we need to buy and start cooking ahead anything that we can, like the dressing and some desserts."

    James continued, "I don't consider it a challenge though; it's definitely a blessing to be able to serve all the meals to those who need it."

    OK, but Where's the "Easy" Part?

    OK, maybe James' job doesn't sound easy, but your support does make it easy for us to serve so many people.  And it's even easier for you to help.  It takes only $1.95 to provide a meal - easy, right?  And if you feel lead, you can just as easily give $19.50 to provide 10 meals, $58.50 to provide 30 meals or $97.50 to provide 50 meals, and so on.  Or, just multiply $1.95 times how many people you want to feed, and you can give that amount too.

    Any gift is greatly appreciated!  Plus, there's three easy ways you can give:

    1. Click here to be taken to our secure donation page.

    2.  Call us at (205) 323-5878 to give by phone.

    3.  Mail your donation to PO Box 10472, Birmingham, AL 35202.

    This Easter and throughout the spring, our goal is to provide 50,000 meals.  And as you can imagine, getting, prepping and cooking that much food is a lot of work.  BUT, it's work that we're blessed and able to do, thanks to your support.
