Our mission is to reach out with the love of Christ to help people in need by providing physical and spiritual nourishment.

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.
