The Truth Hurts. It Also Helps.

August 8, 2020

Times are tough. There’s simply no way around that truth.

A silent killer forces distance to our lives when what we crave most is closeness. Voices of inequality rise above our streets. Families try to adjust to a new normal that is anything but normal.

The truth is, people are scared.
The truth is, people are angry.
The truth is, people are hungry.
The truth is, we don’t know how long our lives will be like this.

Yet, as we all work to navigate this maze of uncertainty, another truth becomes more apparent.

Even in the toughest times, there is hope.

We see this truth in the faces of the people who step up to help – from the simple courtesy of wearing a mask at the grocery store to checking on elderly neighbors. And we experience this truth every day at Meals From The Heart. We have a dedicated team of volunteers who work together to help keep our neighbors’ cupboards full. They pack meals. They assemble food boxes. They deliver food to homes, churches, and schools. They donate their time, talent, and resources to make our neighbors’ lives a little easier.

When we experience the giving spirit of these people, when we see their smiles and feel their love, we know there is hope. That’s the truth. And that’s how we’ll all get through this together.

Thanks to all who give to make our world a better place.
