In 1982, a small men’s prayer breakfast group from the church felt God’s call to feed the hungry around the world. That first year, a yard sale on the grounds raised more than $1,000 for the Southern Baptist World Hunger Fund. Since then, World Hunger Day at FBC-H has raised thousands of dollars to feed those in need.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars raised. Countless lives touched. The love of Jesus shared through gifts, work, and provisions.

There will not be donation pick-ups this year, however, if we are offered big quality items, we’ll try to make arrangements for a direct buyer to benefit WH.
In 2019 over half of the money raised went to Haiti and the rest was used locally.
