FOOD FOR LIFE
In 2004, Pastors David and Janet Roach partnered with Fountain of Life Ministries and stepped out in faith to begin feeding children in the poverty ridden area of Agdao, which is in the heart of Agdao, Davao City,
on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. Agdao was known at that time as the killing fields of the city of Davao. The streets were littered with people sleeping in the doorways and sidewalks simply because they had no homes or money to go elsewhere. Many were children who would beg on the corners for a few pesos to buy food. These children were oftentimes abused and introduced to the world of drugs and sex.
The founders of Food For Life understood that when trying to reach children for Christ, one cannot simply feed the spirit of a child, but also must be concerned with the physical needs of that child as well.
“When we first arrived in the region, we discovered children who would dig in landfills for enough food to fill their bellies or turn to crime at an early age to survive. These children were hungry for basic sustenance, but also more importantly for the life changing power of the love of God" ~ Pastor David Roach
Who We Are
Food for Life is a Ministry to currently 3000 children from all types of situations who have one common factor among themselves. The common factor is they are hungry, Malnourished, and live in some of the poorest places in their nation. This is of no fault of their own but is the reality of what they were born into. Food for Life is a mission of compassion and Love and help. Help comes from supporters, like yourself, who see this need and compassion is stirred in their hearts and they say, "We must help" Then they go to the donate page and do what their heart is telling them to do. From us at Food for Life, on behalf of the children, say Thank You.
Food for Life was established in Agdao, Davao City, Philippines in 2004 and began with 50 children. FFL was designed simply to feed malnourished children and offer healthy meals to impoverished children with monthly monitors weighing and measuring their growth. Usually these children have several signs of malnutrition such as bloated stomachs, rashes, and often under size. FFL provides healthy meals to the children that would not otherwise have because of their impoverished circumstances. FFL offers this service with no strings attached, to all children, solely as a gift from God. It is the prayer of FFL and their staff that you also will join with them in providing for these children by your giving a generous offering. Please see the donate button below. Remember. " as you have done it to the least of these." (Matt.25:40)
