Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) August 10, 2012
The Omidi brothers, Michael Omidi and Julian Omidi and their non-profit organization No More Poverty (nmp.org) are pleased to support Martha’s Kitchen in its mission to “feed the hungry with dignity, no questions asked, no judgment made.” This year, Martha’s Kitchen will serve more than 250,000 meals to the needy men, women and children of the San Jose area.
“Even in the Silicon Valley, famous for its technological innovations, there are hungry and hurting families and children,” says No More Poverty co-founder Julian Omidi. “Providing these people with a hot and satisfying meal is the least we can do. Michael and I feel blessed to be able to help Martha’s Kitchen serve up more food and care for those who need it. ”
In 2011, Martha’s Kitchen (marthas-kitchen.org) celebrated its 30th anniversary and also marked the serving of its 2,000,000 meal. Today, they tell of seeing and serving more families in their kitchen, which is run out of Sacred Heart Church, as the nation’s high unemployment rate makes family situations more dire. A landmark study recently released by Feeding America reports that more than 37 million people – or one in eight Americans – receive food each year through the national network of food banks and kitchens. The kitchen is named after Martha, in the Bible’s New Testament, who unfailingly offered hot meals to Jesus and his band of followers on their frequent journeys.
