 "For I was hungry, and you fed me."

Matthew Chapter 25

INTRODUCING CHAPTER 25 (formerly known as Lincoln Chapter 25)

(STAY TUNED FOR UPCOMING CHANGES TO OUR WEBSITE)

LIVING THE WORD

Millions of lives have been touched because of the efforts, compassion and the desire of so many to make a difference for those in greatest need.   In partnership with our wonderful, caring community that has been diligently working to eliminate local and worldwide hunger, we will hit a milestone in September - 13 years of providing meals for children and their families. Countless blessings have been shared by food recipients and volunteers. Our volunteer groups have included teen therapeutic groups, previous refugee food recipients, senior living groups, faith congregations, businesses, inmates, families, neighborhoods, birthday parties and countless others!

Because of people like you – our mission continues to expand and grow in service. We welcome our entire community to join us in our simple mission to feed Him when He is hungry. Local families continue to need our help - children continue to lose their lives to severe malnourishment at a devastating, unacceptable rate across the globe.

CHAPTER 25

Our mission to ease the burden of hunger by harnessing the power of volunteers is the same vision Mr. Richard Proudfit inspired from the early planning stages of Kids Against Hunger. His dedication, drive – a life of service to feed hungry children and their families are the very reason we exist. As reflection and evaluation continue, we keep coming back to Matthew Chapter 25:35-40.

35 For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. 36 I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’

37 “Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? 39 When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’

40 “And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’

Powerful isn’t it. Simple – straightforward. In 2013, to better reflect our organizational mission – we changed our name from Lincoln Kids Against Hunger to Chapter 25. Our food packaging and distribution efforts have continued and are needed now more than ever, as are meaningful volunteer experiences for people of all ages and walks of life. “KIDS” have been and will remain a significant component of our volunteer groups, but all are welcome. We feel this name change better reflects our organization and our mission.

To better meet the needs and potential of our mission, we have made the decision to separate from “Chapter 25” which Mr. Proudfit is no longer a part of. As a “Chapter 25” satellite all operations have run independently from other satellites meaning the most significant change for the organization is simply a name change. Our mission to feed the hungry locally and worldwide will continue and there are early plans to fully incorporate the message of Matthew Chapter 25 – helping those in need.  

WHEN DID I SEE YOU HUNGRY?

After nearly 10 years of volunteers sharing how this simple act of service has personally impacted them, it is clear hunger is physical and spiritual.   The hunger to be part of a bigger whole – inspired to make a difference, is just as real as physical hunger. It’s also a simple guiding spiritual command we’ve been given.

In Matthew 25:35 the Lord states, “For I was hungry, and you fed me”. We invite you to join us in living this message. Families within our own community struggle to put food on the table, communities continue to experience disasters requiring basic food for survival, children and their families around the world continue to perish due to the effects of severe malnourishment. Surely, this is seeing God hungry.

INTRODUCING…Chapter 25

As Chapter 25, we will continue, with your much needed support, our mission of feeding the hungry.   God willing, we will expand our mission to more fully reflect the very criteria to which we will all be held accountable.

Please accept our invitation to live Chapter 25.
