Help us grow and prepare for the next disaster....
This spring, we had a new 24 foot "mobile pantry" built and outfitted with a smoker grill. The mobile pantry transports canned foods, dry goods and is equipped with a commercial refrigerator and freezer. Now, we need to purchase a diesel generator for this new trailer. This generator will also serve as a back-up in the event of a failure with our main generator that powers our mobile kitchen.
The cost to purchase and mount the generator is almost $10,000. Our goal is to secure enough donations to pay for this important upgrade.
What we do.......
When a hurricane, tornado or other disaster strikes, our natural instinct is to reach out and help those who have been affected. During the last 12 months, Here to Serve has cooked and served almost 16,000 hot, nutritous meals to our friends and neighbors affected by hurricanes. Through Here to Serve, you can easily help those who need us most. Donate, join our disaster relief cooking team or ask your Church, Sunday School Class or Small Group to pray for us.
Where We Started
Here to Serve’s mission is to shed Christ’s light on the darkness that communities experience in the wake of natural disasters by sharing hot meals and the love of God to vulnerable members of affected areas. We are a group of Christian men & women from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. In 2015 Here to Serve was started by Dr. Hiram Johnson and the late Dr. Robert Amason.
Disaster Relief Cooking Team
Any community that faces a natural disaster has been left with lives totally upended. Many families lose everything. Clothing, furniture and even entire homes. Usually, several days to weeks pass before electricity is restored. Without power, it's impossible to store and prepare food. Here to Serve's Disaster Relief Team is equipped to feed a minimum of 1000 meals per day. Healthy, nutritious food that is always at no cost to those affected.
Cooking for Christ
Cooking for Christ is a shared ministry among denominations where larger Churches assist smaller Churches by cooking for youth groups, summer camps, congregational dinners and outdoor events.
Why We Do What We Do
In every community that we serve, there always seems to be a handful of "new friends" that genuinely touch our hearts. Those are the ones who make us grateful that we have listened to God's calling to be the Hands and Feet of Christ. Many times, these friends give us cards and notes of appreciation and love. We would like to share a few of them with you.....
