Our Story
Hunger affects all of us. And sometimes it hits closer to home. That’s what happened in 1985 at the height of Migrant wave into the Metro Miami area when leaders at New Vision Church heard about families in the church who were struggling. Circumstances were making it challenging to put food on the table. So several people did something about it. They purchased groceries, put them into the bed of a pickup, and gave them away after one of the church services.It was one step toward others—and that simple step led to the birth of New Vision Church Food Pantry. It wasn’t long before the entire congregation got involved, and the program expanded to become a partner with the Farm Share, and the Emergency Services Network with weekly distributions.
Step Out
With a mission to change hunger to hope, the Food Pantry expanded and was able serve people not only in the New Vision church family, but also those who lived in the community— people who needed food and were also hungry for true hope. Responding to these needs with love, prayer, and practical help, the Food Pantry, and our Community Development Corporation, Rising Son Foundation, expanded to meet the needs of the growing number of guests who needed help.
