Open Your Heart provided funding to Joyce Uptown Foodshelf to support the emergency response of the food shelf to provide food with respect and dignity to all who come.
The Joyce Uptown Foodshelf was founded 51 years ago as an outreach ministry of Joyce United Methodist Church. It is now an independent 501(c) 3 that continues to live out their mission “to distribute food to those in need with respect and dignity as an expression of the love of God”. In 2019, they served over 12,000 individuals, 30% of those individuals were between the ages of 0-17. Thank you Joyce Uptown Foodshelf for all that you do for individuals and families facing food insecurity!
