Ministry receives frozen chickens for homeless and low-income residents
VICTORVILLE • A truckload of chickens arrived in Victorville on Friday morning, as anxious volunteers waited in line to pick up the frozen fowl.
Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino delivered the chickens to First Assembly of God’s Feed My Sheep Ministry, as it prepared to distribute more than 25,000 pounds of product to 15 nonprofit agencies.
“Our food banks are really hurting and these chickens are really going to help our homeless and low-income clients,” said Linda Triska, executive director of the ministry, which serves nearly 3,200 people a month at three High Desert locations.
Triska credits Gerald Wilson, program manager with the partnership group, for helping with the collaboration effort.
“We don’t get as much food as the San Bernardino area, but every little bit helps,” Triska said. “Partnerships are vital when it comes to serving our area.” In September, Triska was honored by High Desert Resource Network for all the work the ministry does to help the High Desert communities.
