Why We Exist

Sunrise Christian Food Ministry started in 1983 to supply emergency food for needy residents of northeastern Sacramento County area. Currently, food supplies and financing are provided by 25 supporting churches, civic organizations, and individuals. It is the mission of the Food Ministry to provide five (5) days of nutritionally balanced food supplies to each person every 30 days when an emergency occurs. Verifiable residents of Sacramento County is the primary area served by the Food Ministry.  However, if we have the food, we will serve people from other areas.

Since the beginning of the Sunrise Christian Food Ministry the, number of families served has increased seven fold. This has put more burden on the supporting churches and other agencies. However, this helps in the demonstration of the Love of Jesus to our fellow man.

We ask that you, as a supporter of the Food Ministry, consider extending your giving an extra meal or more to help help us fulfill our mission.
