The following is a list and summary of several committees the Board of Directors developed to help support the mission to feed the hungry. All volunteers are welcome to join a committee. For more information regarding these committees or your involvement on a committee, please contact Jeanette Conley at Jeanette.firstname.lastname@example.org
Home Base Committee
This committee focuses on finding us a permanent, long-term location. The purpose of the committee is to apply for grant money, coordinate and research with local organizations to find a building that will support our mission to feed the hungry. Jim Mikes advised that he will develop the property towards the end of 2011 so this committee will work with the Fund Raising Committee to make sure Faith Café has a place to reside.
