Testimony

Believers’ Fellowship Church – Pastor Jon Friedt

When the people we serve found out that Cahill food bank was closing they thought that a helpful source of getting food from our church would shut down. The volunteers who work with our food pantry also thought, “Oh no, what will we do?”

When they found out that Wings of Eagles was opening a food bank it was a huge relief to them.

Our food pantry ministry has been helping families in Polk County for the last 15 years. We help 150 families per month every Thursday evening. These families are elderly, homeless, unemployed, on a fixed income or disabled. We have seen families that have been helped transform their life so they no longer need the food assistance. Most of these families come weekly and volunteer to give back to the food pantry that has helped them.

We love the cleanliness and organization of the food bank as well as the speed of the distribution. The product is rotated quickly and ready for us to choose the items we need.

Testimony

Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health GAP program – Debbie LaBeouf, Community Facilitator

Wings of Eagles food bank is helping the families we serve because the caregivers struggle financially but may not qualify for food stamps because of their income. Wings of Eagles helps them feed their family and get items that they could not afford at retail cost. One caregiver told me, “I am able to make great meals that I could not do otherwise if I had to buy everything at a grocery store”. We serve 200 families per month and 425 children per month throughout Polk County. Many of these families are foster parents or relative caregivers. I am so grateful that we are partnered with you. This helps our families tremendously and I really cannot thank you enough.
