“Food for the Hungry was founded in 1971 by Dr. Larry Ward. Like many of us, he felt pain for the thousands of children dying each day from hunger. After praying, he held to the simple premise that “they die one at a time, and so we can help them one at a time.” Here are highlights of Food for the Hungry’s history from relief work in 1971 to our present work with people like you who sponsor a child.”

It truly is a sanctuary!

The United States Postal Service (USPS) was originally formed in 1971 contrary to the belief that it’s been around for hundreds of years. An incredibly intricate network of addresses, rural routes, international destinations, and unlikely homesteads have been the cornerstone of the USPS system since it began but has become even more complicated in the last few decades.
Did you know that when USPS began, minimal address information was needed for a letter or package to be delivered to the right place? Sometimes just a person’s name, street name, and state were provided by the sender! The post office prided itself on knowing the community and allowing them to keep in touch with loved ones, easily and affordably. Things have changed and USPS has changed with the times; understanding that people are more likely to stay in touch via the internet, USPS has been concentrating more on package delivery in recent years, offering still, the most affordable shipping rates out there!
