About this Season’s giving partners
Feeding The Hungry
The Feeding America network is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, working to connect people with food and end hunger. Donors, staff, and volunteers all play an important role in our efforts to end hunger in the United States. 40 million people face hunger in the U.S. today — including more than 12 million children and nearly five million seniors. Hunger knows no boundaries — it touches every community in the U.S., including your own.
For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited me in; | Matthew 25:35
How does my purchase with DiscoverHorizons help contribute 10 meals with this organization?
“Unlike walking into a grocery store and paying retail prices for food, Feeding America works directly with major manufacturers, retailers and other partners across the country to secure safe, healthy food that would otherwise go to waste. According to a ReFED study conducted in 2016, 72 billion pounds of food is wasted in America each year. Through our partnerships, Feeding America works to rescue this food before it’s wasted — making a difference for the people we serve and for the environment. Because of these successful partnerships, every dollar you donate to Feeding America helps secure and distribute at least 12 pounds of food — the equivalent of 10 meals — through our nationwide network of food banks. Learn more about Feeding America’s allocation of donation dollars.“

Giving the Gift of the Gospel
The story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) gives a clear picture of God’s desire for us to help those in desperate need wherever we find them. After describing how the Samaritan rescued a hurting man whom others had passed by, Jesus told His hearers, “Go and do likewise.” For over 40 years, Samaritan’s Purse has done it’s utmost to follow Christ’s command by going to the aid of the world’s poor, sick, and suffering.
