Hunger Ministries

Over 795 million people go hungry on any given day worldwide. In the United States, where there is poverty, hunger is there also. The people of Incarnation believe that it is important to address hunger issues on a variety of fronts – tending to the immediate need of providing food and resources for people in crisis as well as working to address the root causes of hunger. Incarnation partners formally and informally with organizations locally, nationally and globally to make that happen.

Incarnation’s has formal ministry partnerships with the following hunger agencies:

Ralph Reeder Food Shelf
Feed My Starving Children

In addition, Incarnation invites participation with the opportunities listed below to help alleviate hunger in the community:

Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels is a program that delivers meals to seniors who are living independently. Based out of a location at 3490 Lexington Ave. N in Shoreview and serving the Mounds View area, Incarnation is responsible for one Meals on Wheels route on Fridays beginning at 10:45 a.m. This is a fun, low time commitment opportunity to do with a friend, as a family, or on your own. To volunteer, contact Becky Benson.

Blessing Bags

A Blessing Bag is a large bag full of items which are useful to those who might be experiencing homelessness or are struggling, and you encounter on the street. Learn more about Incarnation’s Blessing Bag ministry. For questions, contact Becky Benson.

Hunger Awareness and Advocacy Group

When: Once/month on Tuesdays, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m., September – May.

Learn and talk about a variety of issues related to hunger, in a group with others who share a common concern for those struggle with food insecurity. The group gets together to study hunger issues, locally, nationally, and internationally, to learn about and visit organizations addressing hunger, and take part in advocacy efforts, such as letter-writing. This is an on-going group that is looking to welcome new people. Contact: Vernita Kennen at dvkennen@aol.com.
