The group included ministers from several denominations, but also teachers, business owners, and community activists. Over the past thirty years it has expanded from a small second floor room serving around 20 families per week to a 3600 square foot warehouse distributing more than 7 tons of food weekly at two locations to over 700 households comprised of more than 1350 individuals.
