Nineteen years ago, after much discussion and prayer, our path and God’s guidance were revealed to us and Hungry for Christ in Hamilton, MI was born. We were inspired to carry out His good works by filling a need – in Hamilton and the surrounding areas – for good food and good people to deliver it. What began as a home ministry – offering discarded or superficially damaged boxes of food, which were perfect inside – blossomed and evolved into the large Christian non-profit it is today.
From humble beginnings, word of our mission began to spread and we started to build a network of friends, neighbors, churches, and ministries to help more and more families in need. As our trickle of food and supplies from our home workspace became a steady stream from our new barn office, we knew that we would need more to satisfy the people’s needs as well as our hunger for service. The flood of giving was on and we found a space to match it.
Hungry for Christ now answers the call and provides for the people in our communities from a 44,000-square-foot warehouse, complete with coolers, freezers, a clean room, and repacking facilities. We are currently renovating a larger facility to meet our expanding space requirements, which we moved into completely during the fall of 2016. We work with over 50 different food manufacturers and distributors, as well as a host of schools, churches, organizations, and outreach programs to pursue our divinely-inspired mission throughout the different avenues of the industry.
