Beyond loaves and fishes

“A line of people snaked through the Howard Christian Church, out the door and down the sidewalk as hundreds of families waited for boxes of food on a recent Saturday morning. In the next county over, at West Side United Methodist Church in Clearfield, the scene was repeated as people lined up to claim 1,330 boxes of food. The churches are distribution points for Angel Food Ministries, a Georgia-based nonprofit organization that puts about $50 worth of food — enough to feed four people for a week — in the hands of people for $25.”
