Our mission is to reach out with the love of Christ to provide physical and spiritual nourishment.

The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever
you did for one of the least of these brothers
and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
- Matthew 25:40

  • Volunteers and community service workers are the lifeblood of RIFA! Without them, we can't operate. You can't bless others without also receiving a blessing yourself, so the volunteers get a great blessing by serving here. Most choose to come back again and again.

    -Dan Ward, RIFA volunteer coordinator
  • Financial contributions are a necessary part of RIFA. They couldn’t do what they do if we don’t contribute financially. My heart is here at RIFA.

    -Ann Edwards, RIFA donor and volunteer
