Scott County came into the spotlight in 2015 after experts saw an alarming uptick in HIV and Hepatitis C cases as a result of IV drug use. Community programs like Food 4 Our Souls are helping these addicts find help in a desperate time of need.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH A HUGE SUCCESS...
A "BIG PRAISE GOD" for The First Annual Austin Community Outreach. The event was hosted at the Jayce Ray Stallings Youth Center and Church of The New Convenant, and was sponsored by FOOD 4R SOULS. Fourteen different churches were represented by the volunteers. Four hundred guests were supplied with clothes, canned food, and a meal. Testimonies were heard, prayers were prayed, and neighborly fellowship were a huge part of the day. THANK YOU TO VOLUNTEERS AND DONORS! A "Back To School Austin Community Outreach" event will be announced.

STRIVING TO DO MORE IN 2016
Food 4R Souls have been feeding more than 100 people that are in need, a meal every
week. The Church of the New Covenant have been providing the facility, for us to use to serve
out of. There is an urgency to get more nutritious meals to the people we have been serving and
to be able to serve the meals more often.
We are asking for monetary donations (CLICK HERE TO GO TO OUR DONATIONS PAGE)
to help support this effort and greatly appreciate your consideration in this matter. We are meeting their physical needs of food and clothing, along with their spiritual needs. We are in the first stages of planning to build our State
Approved Certified Kitchen. This will enable us to prepare and serve more nutritious meals.
The kitchen addition will be built onto the Jayce Ray Stallings Youth Center. The addition's
dimensions are 100x 24 feet, which will include dining area, restrooms, showers, and a laundry room.
We know that this addition will supply a comfortable, warm, and friendly atmosphere where they can
wash their clothes, take a shower, and eat a meal in a safe haven.
The estimated cost of this facility in Austin, Indiana is $100,000. The kitchen equipment
is estimated $25,000. There will be ongoing expenses of food, clothing, utilities, Bibles,
blankets, and coats. There is a need for socks, soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, toilet paper
and the list goes on. Their needs are like ours, but they may not have water, electricity, heat,
