Kumler Outreach Ministries meets people where they live, feeding the hungry, caring for the sick, helping clothe people, teaching people life skills and building relationships. The food pantry, clothing ministry and medicine program reach thousands of people each year in the greater Springfield, Illinois area giving them help and hope. Hospitality House, a weekly community meal; The Neighborhood Gardens, a community garden; and the GED program offer individuals a chance to belong, to learn new skills and to enrich their lives. Kumler Outreach Ministries is building lives through hope.

During what's been one of our busiest weeks of the year in the food pantry, it's been a blessing to have the wonderful donations from the youth participating in last week's Honest Abe Care Fest. Also a big thanks to the Capital Cruisers Motorcycle Club for delivering the donations to us.

The Honest Abe Care Fest provides hands-on home repairs for those in need in the Springfield area. You can learn more at honestabecarefest.com

The Neighborhood Gardens, our community garden in two locations, was on the Roots to Rooftops tour held in Springfield. There were bike and car routes for the tour and people could drop by the gardens and find out all about them.

The Neighborhood Gardens is about more than growing food; they're about building relationships, turning strangers into friends and improving community - on a personal basis and a neighborhood one.

We welcome people to drop by on one of our work nights at 6 p.m.and see what we're about. On Mondays we're at the Springfield Art Association and on Wednesdays we're at 1022 N. 5th (south of the tracks and across from the Bike Doctor). Just look for The Neighborhood Gardens signs.
