When I found myself very short of money during the summer, I decided it was time for me to start exploring other alternatives to buying food. This is an excellent avenue for purchasing the same quality food that I would normally purchase with significantly less cost. This organization is unique because of the increased emphasis in fellowship and good grounded values. I have not only benefited through having low-cost food, but also through the wonderfully friendly people I have met.

We found out about the "foodthing" when we most needed it. We were not getting enough income to buy food. When we heard about the food distributions of New Community Ministries, we decided to try it, and since then it has exceeded our expectations! Not only do we get some fresh organic fruits and veggies, dairy products, pre-made sandwiches, and other goodies from Whole Foods, along with more bread from Panera than we can eat, but also we get this all in a box for only $6. The same amount of food bought at a store would cost us many times more this number. If it were not for this ministry, we would be in a worse place right now. We are thankful for God's provision through Christine's hard work, as well as, through the many volunteers that help out each week. Thank you for helping us survive and stay healthy! We love you!

I have not had a need for the resources offered by New Community Counseling and Ministries, but have seen first hand their work in providing food to the needy. I am a Divorce Care leader at Community Christian Church in Naperville, Il. I encounter on a weekly basis individuals that have needs due to divorce or separation. Many have to leave their homes and in some cases their families and live separate. These individuals experience hard ship in finding a place to live and in some cases need help to make ends meet. I have seen NCC&M providing food packages to these individuals on a weekly basis and know that their food program is well recieved.
