Hunger
We promise: You will not go hungry
 

It's a bold promise, but members of St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Kensington, Maryland, want to take care of their neighbors in a very big way: by making sure no one in their area will go hungry.

They're calling it a "hunger-free zip code."

Volunteers stock a grocery store type food pantry where clients can shop once a month, in addition to the church delivering food to families at other times. It's sparked some lasting friendships and taken the church beyond the walls and out into the community.

This program has brought a lot of surprises and unexpected joy. - Meg Baker, church member

That's what's happening within the 20895 ZIP code. What's happening in yours?
