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, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me. I was in prison and you came to visit me. (Matthew 25:35-36 NIV)

During the month of Dec. LASM Food Pantry served 365 family units for a total of 850 individuals. This brings the total for the year to 4732 family units including 10,806 individuals.
This was a huge undertaking and accomplishment. I want to Thank GOD, All the Volunteers and Donors, Food Drives, and Fund Raisers for this success.
Proverbs 29: 18 "Where there is no vision people perish." LASM Food Pantry continues to strive to improve our service to our immediate community. We want to Thank All who made suggestions to improve this service.
LASM Food Pantry at this time is limiting its service to the four (4) southern Zip Codes in Hunt Co. (75189), (75474), (75453), (75169). There are seven (7) other food pantries in central and northern Hunt co. to serve the remaining Zip Codes.
LASM Food Pantry also has started distributing the food products per family member rather than family unit. This seems to be a much fairer way to distribute the product
LASM Food Pantry gave away 449 Christmas boxes to families thru the joint venture of Hunt County Shared Ministries and Brookshires.
Proverbs 19: 17 "Whoever is generous to the poor lends to The LORD and The LORD will repay his deed"
Eph. 2:10 "For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which GOD prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them."
LASM administered funds to clients amounting to $29,3480.17 in electricity and $6,290.85 in prescriptions.
As always, I consider it an honor and privilege to serve this community and God; to Whom I give all the Glory for what He has done, is doing, and will do in my life. I ask for your prayers and help for this ministry of God to abound.
Thank You All Very Much For The Remarkable Year.
