His Compassion is an entirely non-profit food bank operated by unpaid board members, staff, and volunteers that are made up of nurses, politicians, businessmen, businesswomen, lay people, and clergy from a broad number of faiths. We work long hours with a dedicated team that works for free...beginning at 5 am and ending at non. We are here to satisfy a real need in our community without the overhead costs of expensive staff. When we receive donations, the funds are used to pay for truck and fuel expenses, and power to keep the frozen foods frozen and the produce and dairy cold.
His Compassion practices safe care, custody, and control procedures for our foods and has certificated staff, CDL licensed driver and DOT inspected refrigerated trucks that deliver the products safely to the community.
In fact, we have quietly provided over 8 million pounds of food in the first 8 months of 2020 to all of Marion County and beyond.
Through August, we have given:
232,898 boxes of food
6654 families served per week at remote handouts in Alachua, Citrus, Sumpter, Levy, Putnam, Lake and Marion counties
300-400 families served weekly at our onsite drive through events.
We do not just give a box, we try to fill your trunk with all that you need to sustain your family.
