FEBRUARY 25, 2019

Jesus Cares, Inc. is a non-profit, 501c3 Christian organization committed to feeding the homeless in downtown San Diego. Every Friday, for over eight years, we have delivered hot soup, fruit, bread, water, and snacks to approximately 300 souls without missing a single Friday.
Recently, a new Bill AB 2178, regulated by the Health Department has impacted all organizations who feed the homeless, including Jesus Cares, Inc. Although some organizations have now abandoned this needed service, Jesus Cares, Inc. . is committed to being in compliance with this Bill, and all health department rules by the June 1, 2019 deadline.
We have taken a huge leap of faith to honor God’s call to provide hot food to our less fortunate brothers and sisters. Knowing that God is greater than this challenge, we are raising funds to create a kitchen that will allow Jesus Cares, Inc. and other organizations, to feed our needy, while abiding with the health department regulations for food distribution to the public.
To accomplish this task we are asking for your financial support to purchase a facility that can be utilized as a kitchen. Jesus Cares, Inc. will also open this facility to other organizations who feed the homeless, acting as coordinator and trainer.
We pray our success will be a model for others to follow, so that they too will serve food to the homeless within the guidelines of health and safety.
Your tax deductible donation will be a tremendous help to our commitment to meet the needs of a needy community.  Thank you!

Hello dear friends and supporters,

I want to update you on what’s happening with the Kitchen Project, but before I go there, I want to thank all of you who have contributed with prayers and financial support! Your contributions have served as confirmation, encouragement, and foundation to the initial expenses of this project.

The latest update is that God may allow our ministry to stay in the kitchen we currently use. As a Kitchen Project Team, we see this as a miracle and Gods’ way of extending our time to continue working on this project which will serve the homeless population in a broader way, as it is our desire to offer use of the new kitchen to other ministries who otherwise cannot continue to serve the homeless wholesome meals.

So, I am reaching out to you for continued prayers and financial support. I am very passionate about Matthew 25:40: “The King will reply, truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” My passion is not only for downtown San Diego, it is global… as you may know, I have gone multiple times to Africa with this verse in mind. For this reason, I am passionate and desire to continue what I feel God has laid on my heart. This project is about our dear brothers and sisters in San Diego County.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could support our GoFundMe by making a donation and then sharing with your network. I understand money is limited, but know any donation, of any size, will make a difference towards our goal!

Let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to join our team.

All in the name of Jesus, for His purpose and for His Glory!
