While government officials continue to squabble about how to help those who are out of work due to the coronavirus pandemic, private charities have been busy handing out food to the hungry.
In Los Angeles, the Christian nonprofit Los Angeles Dream Center is providing 11,000 meals per day with over 300,000 distributed thus far, thanks to the help of partners like Kanye West and Chick-fil-A, Fox News reported.
Dream Center co-founder Matthew Barnett called the effort a “miracle of biblical proportions.” He also credited support from West, whose recent conversion to born-again Christianity has been as profound as it is public, for the ability to now deliver meals to shut-in seniors.
“We will change the world,” West tweeted months before his gospel album“Jesus Is King” dropped in October. “God is on my side. I am a Christian. I am a tax payer. I am myself. God is with us.”
Though raised in a Christian household, West rejected his religious upbringing, according to Beliefnet. However, he experienced a newfound faith and began holding what he called Sunday Service in December 2018. He declared himself a born-again Christian in 2019, according to The Christian Post.
