In a typical exchange at the Sister Philomena Outreach Center at Christ the King Church, needy individuals from Harris and Talbot counties receive more than the blessings of groceries or financial assistance in paying their rent and utility bills.

 

As a necessary bonus, they also receive the hands, eyes and ears of those who allocate these short-term, emergency resources.

They come from different backgrounds but all have one main thing in common: Food insecurity.
