On January 26, youth from around the state of New Mexico gathered to help feed and clothe the homeless population of Albuquerque in a program called Feed the Need. Central United Methodist Church served as one of three Feed the Need locations. At Central, more than 50 youth served approximately 300 people.
Feed the Need not only offered hamburgers, hot dogs, and clothing items, but also brought people together in relationship, prayer, and worship.
Kristin Leve of Albuquerque Healthcare for the Homeless remembered the recent loss of her friend Mary Stuckman through the words of this poem:
At Feed the Need 2014 not only were many people fed, but many souls were touched.
