Since the need to assist the hungry didn’t end once the infrastructure was repaired, neither did the FSBCS. The church is quite small; in fact, it averages less than 50 people a week for its Sunday service — yet it provides food to an average of 5,000 people per month. It manages to do this week after week, month after month, year after year — with a workforce comprised entirely of volunteers. There are no administrative costs or overhead. This has been done by effectively collaborating with a host of other community organizations from withing the public and private sectors. As continued recipients of Federal resources, the boundaries between Church and State are clearly understood and respected.
