2022 Summer Newsletter
We turned up the heat this summer! Our team of dedicated volunteers and partners served Camden families faithfully by delivering 138,300 pounds of food. And it doesn't stop there!
By the grace of God, Wholesome Riches was able to provide families and individuals with vital food resources. Through prayerful partnerships, our team saw lives changed.

Back to School: The need Increases
Summer might be coming to an end, but Wholesome Riches is just getting started! Wholesome Riches is preparing for a new school year and with your support, we can expect answered prayers, children cared for, marriages restored, families united and individuals experiencing the love of God for the first time. Here are three ways to join us as we continue to answer the call to meet the needs of Camden families during the 2022/2023 school year.
Join us in Prayer
We NEED BAGS! Every month 4000 bags are filled with food that supplies a Camden family in need. With the NJ ban on plastic bags, making a donation today will enable our team to purchase reusable bags.
Every dollar donated provides 3 meals to individuals experiencing food insecurity. Make a donation today to help us meet the food needs of Camden, NJ.
The new school will bring new challenges for our team, the teachers, the students, the faculty and the families at each school we serve. Help us pray for provision, protection and opportunities to spread the Gospel.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support! Blessings, The Wholesome Riches Team
