Welcome to Gleanings for the Hungry

As a mercy ministry of Youth With A Mission (YWAM) our vision is simple: "to feed the hungry, both physically and spiritually".  A large part of fulfilling our mission is the procurement and production of shelf-stable food. Throughout the year, dried soup mix is blended from various donated ingredients.  During the summer, we sun-dry peaches and nectarines that are not market-grade. We are a destination for teams of all ages, youth groups, families, and individuals to work together for eternal impact in a hurting world. Everything we produce is given free of charge, to partner ministries around the world, and then distributed with the love of Jesus.  Gleanings for the Hungry is an all-volunteer 501(c) (3) registered Non-Profit charity.

Uptown will be bringing a group of 25 youth (ages 13+) and leaders to the YWAM base to take part in this mercy ministry, leaving on June 31, 2018 and returning early the week of July 8th. The return trip is yet to be determined. 

The anticipated cost of travel expenses (sleeping arrangements, food, gas) for trip there and back is $600 (including the cost of the week of work at the YWAM base). Included in the trip is a good ole Fourth of July celebration, US style, an unbelievable waterpark and lots of swimming! 

Fundraisers will begin imminently for those interested. Please contact Katie Twitchett or Sarah Paul for more information.
