Hezekiah Walker and a drove of volunteers from Love Fellowship Tabernacle and the Local DC9 Union organization Feed the Hope converged upon Brooklyn’s Fort Greene Park to unload food from an 18-wheeler. They were there to serve, and that is exactly what they did for three hours on a crisp Saturday before Thanksgiving, as families who needed some relief this holiday lined up for a food box. The food giveaway was sponsored with the Christian organization Feed the Hope.
“We expected to be in the park until about 4 p.m.,” says Walker, who has hosted a food giveaway every year for the past 18 years. “But this has been a challenging year for so many people, and those who wanted boxes were there early. We handed out all of the food faster than ever before.”
A Brooklyn native, Walker is committed to serving the community that is still the home to the original location of Love Fellowship Tabernacle. Walker says: “Evangelism is the epitome of Ministry, and service is an extension of evangelism. It is always a joy to see the effect that this type of outreach has on the community. Feeding the multitudes is something I wish I could do every day.”
