Isaiah's House Food Ministry endeavors to serve the underprivileged and families in need within the Talladega community by providing food and other services as it pertains to the ministry's outreach. Our philosophy is to supply a hand-up service rather than a hand-out service. We welcome all with a warm smile and a listening ear and provide a ways and means to help families get through the toughest times.
Our service hours are Monday through Thursday from 9:30am to 12:30pm.
After a family or individual has registered, they are welcome to participate in Isaiah's House distribution of food and other items once per month.
Isaiah’s House Food Ministry is a 501c3 Non-profit organization established to prevent hunger in Talladega County, AL. We believe that every person has a right to adequate food obtained with dignity. Isaiah’s House Food Ministry will work to prevent hunger and malnutrition by providing food to people in need today and by promoting social policies to achieve a good security for tomorrow.
Talladega County is a rural area where public transportation is very limited; in fact there is no public bus transportation system in place. It goes without saying that some go days without food and no one really is aware because they are unable to move about as they did in their earlier days.
The unemployment rate in Alabama is 8.7%. Talladega County, AL is 8.9 per the Bureau of Labor Statistics in November 2011. There are 420,000 Veterans in the state of Alabama of which 18,000 live in Talladega County. Industry in Talladega County is virtually gone. Training is needed to provide our citizens technical skills which can be used in other job fields.
It is our goal through this project to provide food to 12,000 individuals and allow them to enroll in our program to prepare healthy meals. In addition to providing food for our citizens, we are helping to prepare our veterans for job opportunities. Our target market will be veterans returning from war within the last 3-5 years. We will teach them how to grow their food then prepare and market products for sale. To add another avenue for advancement to them we will teach computer skills.
Food & Clothing Outreach
This program has been the heart of our operation for the past seven years. We served over 11,000 clients in 2011. The food service provides fresh vegetables, frozen food, can foods, other boxed foods and other personal hygiene items obtained from donors. We are expanding our operation in order serve our clients on a larger scale. Our goal is to serve 12,000 clients in the next year. We will increase food storage space by 50% capacity by adding a second large walk-in freezer and add more food partnerships.
