Compassion Turns Ordinary Citizens INto Heroes

The Lord Is My Help has lent a hand for over 30 years!


The Lord Is My Help Food Kitchen has been feeding the elderly, ill, disabled & indigent people in parts of Jackson and Harrison Counties since 1983. We serve 150 meals per day in our kitchen, deliver 150 meals to home-bound citizens, and distribute around 400 bags of groceries to those in need to of emergency assistance on a monthly basis. You can help us continue to feed people in need with as little as a can of soup. Every donation we receive goes directly to this worthy cause. 

Hunger isn't seasonal, which is why our year-round food drive gets so much attention. Devote an afternoon to stocking our pantry and see first-hand the families we help daily.

Locally, The Lord Is My Help is an advocate for the hungry, ill, disabled, & homebound. We travel between Jackson & Harrison counties to help children and families in need.

Planning for the 6th Annual Feed the Need Concert and Fish Fry is underway and we need your help! We are raising money for those in need. Our committee members are selling tickets & sponsorships for this years event!  Please consider sponsoring this years event. We feel confident that this is going to be our most successful event yet! Your donation is tax deductible too!
