You have probably heard that 2 Fish Ministries, an ecumenical Christian-inspired program, provides over 12,500 meals monthly to people in several parts of Puerto Peñasco who are in need of food and other assistance. Did you know they also take meals to 4 schools in poorer neighborhoods, and invite families to share in the meal that is being provided to the school’s students? As well, meals are served at the jail, the rehab center, and a site east of town that feeds about 200 women and children daily. The newest meal site, located along the railroad tracks north of town, opened in mid-March, and is already providing daily meals for another 200 women and children. You might be surprised to learn that, for some of these people, the meals provided by 2 Fish are the only food they receive!
Far more than filling stomachs, 2 Fish also helps to provide clothing, household items, even blankets and beds to families in need, through the meal sites. The 2 Fish volunteers say that they are the true beneficiaries of the meal program, citing the friends they have made and the personal satisfaction they have gained while working with the program.
If you’d like to help, just show up any weekday at the main meal site on Boulevard Kino, just a block or two southwest of Numeros, starting at 11AM. If you are unable to help in person, perhaps you’d like to make a donation…all that food costs money! Your check can be written to Mission Heartbeat, and mailed to Mission Heartbeat, c/o Monroe Riddle, P.O. Box 1622 , Lukeville , AZ 85341 . Your donation is fully tax deductible, and 100% of it goes to buy food and supplies for the meal program. Cash, clothing, household items, paper supplies, cleaning products, or anything else you may wish to donate, may be dropped off to Monroe Riddle at the Coldwell Banker office, or to Maria at the Black Dog Restaurant. Thank you for helping!
