If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say
unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and
it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
                                                                 Matthew 17:20


"Feeding Kids with a Mustard Seed of Faith"

About Us

Sheila and Kenzie Gilbert provide lunches to 150 children each weekday beginning the day school is out in the spring until the day it resumes in the fall.  Most of the children who live in this St. Joseph, Missouri neighborhood receive free or reduced priced breakfast and lunch during the school year but have limited food resources in the summer.

While serving these children, The Gilberts have learned their names, met their families and heard their stories.  They've come face to face with the sobering reality of poverty in the community. Click Here to Read  "Community Matters Publications.

And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.  Matthew 10:42 (NIV)

Beyond Summer

In addition to serving lunches, Shelia and Kenzie Gilbert have also collected and distributed hundreds of turkeys each Thanksgiving to their friends and neighbors.

They make sure children have school supplies, clothes and shoes.

They have organized activities for kids including fishing trips and water games.
