 for those finding themselves in crisis

in Rowan County, NC.

Coming Events:


Hope Calendar Sponsorships


Hunger is a serious problem in Rowan County. Over 19% of our neighbors live in poverty. Over 24,000 people (17.4%) struggle to pay for food. As winter approaches, their financial burdens are greater as they choose between buying groceries or paying for heat. But you can help lighten their loads. 


Our HOPE Calendar campaign allows you to help our neighbors in need by sponsoring meals served at Rowan Helping Ministries. You can honor family, friends, co-workers, pastors, or other special people on any occasion with each meal you sponsor. 




We feed the hungry. This year Rowan Helping Ministries will serve over 95,000 meals in Jeannie's Kitchen. Lunch is served to anyone who needs a hot, nutritious meal. Breakfast and dinner are provided for our shelter guests. 


Help us feed the hungry by sponsoring a meal for the day, week or more in honor, memorial, birthday, anniversary, special occasion or just because. The sponsorship cost and levels are:


Breakfast: $50.00 Lunch: $250.00 Dinner: $100.00 One Full Day: $400.00 One Full Week: $2,800.00




The honoree will be recognized/honored on the HOPE CALENDAR  on this website. Donors who contribute more than $50 will receive a copy of the printed CALENDAR which features pictures of churches in our Rowan County community.


Thank you for your generosity and support in this effort to feed the hungry.
