Christ Church is a member of the Children’s Hunger Fund Mercy Network.
(From the CHF web site)
Children’s Hunger Fund (CHF) works in some of the most needy regions in the world. In the slums of Guatemala, in the refugee villages in Northern Uganda, in the wake of disasters in Indonesia and Perú, and on the mean streets of America’s inner-cities, CHF earnestly seeks to provide for the needs of children and make lasting impact in their lives.
CHF distributes Food Paks® and bulk food through a network of compassionate ministries. We call this a “Mercy Network.” Mercy Network ministries deliver Food Paks to homes and distribute bulk food at regular distribution events.
In various regions around the world, large local churches or non-governmental organizations serve as hubs for distribution of CHF resources throughout widespread networks. These Mercy Networks supply indigenous churches with a pool of resources. CHF provides in-depth training to help community leaders develop philosophies and standards that will influence the way they serve. CHF supplies nutritious foods, clothing, medicine, and toys at no cost so they can show generous, compassionate care to the children and families in their communities.
