800 Families to Receive Food and Essentials

  BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (Dec. 4, 2012) On Wednesday, Dec. 5, Feed The Children will deliver two semi tractor-trailers full of food and essentials to Miracle Deliverance Temple Church of God at 28 South Park Road SW in Birmingham. The food and essentials will be distributed to children and families beginning at 10 a.m.

Feed The Children partner agency Miracle Deliverance Temple Church of God has pre-identified families receiving the boxes. Each family will receive a 25-pound box of food and a 10-pound box of personal care items. The boxes are designed to help a family of four for up to one week.

The distribution is part of Feed The Children’s Americans Feeding Americans Caravan, which has helped more than 430,000 families across the country since it began in 2009.

Nearly half of the children living in Birmingham (44.9 percent[1]) are considered impoverished. In fact, the number of children living in poverty in Alabama (310,5901) could fill Bryant-Denny Stadium more than three times.

“Many of the families on the Americans Feeding Americans Caravan considered themselves middle class just a few short years ago. Now they are making hard choices between paying bills and feeding their families,” said Tony Sellars, spokesperson for Feed The Children. “With the help Miracle Deliverance Temple Church of God and our many partner agencies we can help make that choice a little easier for families struggling in this economy.”
