Thomas Food Project – Haiti
The Thomas Food Project was the inspiration of SRVUMC-member, Warren McGuffin, after his first visit to the earthquake damaged country. During this visit, he noticed many of the children didn’t have a sustainable food supply and many were so hungry they were eating dirt. The Thomas Food Project was born in a school located in Thomas, Haiti, and the program has expanded and into six school sites, serving over 500 meals per day. Read Warren’s update to learn more.
