Food for Thought
Did you know that World Hunger Day is this month?
Though June is often a time of transition from spring to summer, digging out that summer swimsuit, and planning vacations, it’s also a month where many of our neighbors may be more food insecure than the month before. In June, school is out for the summer, and so are some of the food-related programs that sustain families during the school year. Many of our neighbors worry about being able to provide good, nutritious meals for their families during these summer months.
Typically during the summer, The New Love Center sees an increase in the number of parents who seek help to provide fresh food and nutritious meals for their household.
What can you do to make a difference?
Donations are always appreciated!
Whether giving an online donation to TNLC or bringing in needed items like peanut butter, large egg noodles, or powdered dish detergent, the gift you give today can help a family be secure.
Volunteer and bring a friend!
We are so grateful to the volunteers who make the TNLC mission possible. Consider donating your time to help out, and feel good that you made a difference in a family’s life this month.
Keep your neighbors in prayer!
During this month, keep our families who are food insecure in your prayers. Invite your pastor, your neighbors, and your family to do the same.

“So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.” -Galatians 3:26
During the month of June, we give thanks for families and particularly give thanks for the fathers, uncles, and mentors in our lives. Paul’s letter to the Galatians reminds us that we are all united, brought together through Christ, and made children of God through faith.
It doesn’t matter what you look like, where you come from, or who your favorite sports teams are! We are part of the same family, and have an unbreakable bond through Jesus Christ. And because we are one family, we’re called to share that family love with another.
Is there someone you know who could use a reminder that they are loved?
- It’s a great time to send them a note. Pick out a fun card!
- Give them a call and let them know you’ve been thinking about them!
- Get together and have a good meal, and as you’re passing the salt, be sure to spread the love!
