Grace now doesn't need to worry about daily meals
Grace now doesn't need to worry about daily meals

Grandma Grace suffers from high blood pressure and diabetes for many years. Her limbs are weak and her walking is unstable, it causes her falling often. Unfortunately, Grace hurt her back so it made her lay on the bed most of the time... 

Grace's son was sentenced to prison, so there is no one to take care of her. The residential security worried about Grace's daily life and meals, so he tried to connect with community resources for Grace.

After knowing Grace's situation, the social worker of the Mustard Seed Mission linked to one community food bank near Grace's house, and the food bank staffs prepare daily supplies and food and send them to Grace's house immediately. Besides, the food bank staffs visit Grace and care about her life and health often. 

Day after day, Grace no longer worry about her own daily life. The services of the food bank make Grace feel safe and loved, she knows she isn't alone.

In Taiwan, there are 1.6 million populations a year suffering from hunger!

Yet, more than hundred tons of food are thrown away.

The Mustard Seed Mission see the need and establish community food banks

to receive donated food and offer service in the communities!

The refrigerator Enhances the Service Influence

The Mustard Seed Mission actively promotes the community food bank and distribute food and supplies to all sectors of the community via distribution stations. There are over 200 community food banks in Taiwan. The GIS Foundation response to us and start to share and promote the sharing food movement. The foundation donated refrigerators to distribution stations in northern, central and southern Taiwan. Besides, the 15 years second-hand refrigerator in Agape Children's Home has finally retired because of the donated refrigerator. At the same time, the foundation installed an awning for the children in the children's home to hang their clothes. No matter how clammy the weather is, children still can feel the warmth from the society!

Don't Worry about the Next Meal

The implementation of the community food bank is going to enter the third year. During the services, we found that many kids from economically disadvantaged family may not be able to have three meals a day when they study outside; in some family, parents leave the house because they got into a fight; or because of the sudden disease happens on the family caregivers and need to stay in hospital, so they leave their hungry children at home. Even those who don't look like "vulnerable" did encounter some plights, but they had difficulties to express…

The Mustard Seed Mission's goal on "hunger-free" service is "one county, one distribution station, one township, one community food bank" in order to establish a network of non-hunger community to share food and supplies to those in need in the community. However, we only have one refrigerator in Hualien distribution station. Thus, we need to raise refrigerators equipment for the rest of the distribution stations for handling the refrigerated and frozen food that will be delivered to each community food bank.

Send love to where it has needs

In order to keep the food fresh, we also let the link between the Mustard Seed Mission and convenient store logistics to reach a more effective resource sharing. The Mustard Seed Mission appreciate the support from enterprises and the communities. With the action of love, let's take care of the community needs and the service for needy children.

Many seniors are sick and their children are off town to work, so they may live alone and are difficult to handle three meals a day themselves. They are invited to the community food bank to enjoy the shared meals together with other seniors in the community, and it does solve the problem of preparing lunch on their own. Besides, the volunteers in the food bank share love and care about these community seniors meet the needs of seniors’ body and mind. Now, come to visit the community food bank is one of the most enjoyable things for community seniors.

Volunteers from 16 community food banks which are under the food bank network of the Mustard Seed Mission visited “Fortune Foodbank” to learn how it runs its service.
Manager of Fortune Foodbank, Mr. Liu, was cooking in the kitchen. Liu set these volunteers into cleaning group, cooking group, wrapping group… and led them to deliver service to needy people. One of service in Fortune Foodbank is shared banquet, needy people can come to the food bank, sit down with other people, and enjoy the free banquet. The food at the banquet is all donated. So volunteers come to learn how to organize the banquet.

Volunteers arrange all the ingredients and make pickle and then deliver to needy families
 
Volunteers use the donated cabbages to make dumplings

After the banquet, volunteers shared their experiences:

Grace Community Foodbank:

last year we started the service to deliver food to needy people. We also opened a Chinese New Year banquet for around 300 needy people. Everyone was satisfied and enjoyed. We are happy to see it.

Niao Song Community Food Bank:

We connect with shops or restaurants in the community which are willing to share food to needy children who are in our after-school tutoring class. This way needy children are able to have dinner every day.

Light Community Foodbank:

I remember a single mother who raised three children who deny receiving help from us; but in the end, she has the willingness to take the initiative to come to us to receive supplies. It fulfills their needs of the livelihood, but also let them feel be loved. She and the children start smiling. Through sharing food, it not only provides food and clothing, but also provides people with love and warmth.

When the Zhuo family see a roasted chicken was brought to them in the winter, they are grateful and moving. The Zhuo family is a 7 people's family and there are 3 generations live together in one house.

In the past year, the Zhuo received many help and assistance from the Mustard Seed Mission's community service center. Staffs in the community food bank are like the angel and often deliver supplies to them. Last November, the Zhuo got one more baby and fortunately, they got baby supplies such as infant formula from the Mustard Seed Mission. It did cost down their daily expenses and they are able to pay more attention to taking care of the newborn baby.

When the food bank staffs see the smile on the baby's face, she feels loved and joyful! It motivates she to work harder to take care of needy people in the community! Hope every person is able to get bits of help and feel the love from the society.
