About Hunt County Shared Ministries (FISH)

Working in the PantryIn 1981, several exceptional and caring individuals from Redeemer Lutheran Church and Grace Presbyterian Church of Greenville came together to attempt to alleviate hunger in our community. By serving a few families a week, these pioneers set in motion the future of FISH now Hunt County Shared Ministries.

Now, over 30 years later, our mission has not changed, but has grown and evolved into a true partnership between area churches, community members, county businesses, and other non-profits, social service agencies and foundations to not only feed the hungry, but to help families deal with many of the crisis situations that can devastate our most vulnerable populations. Hunt County Shared Ministries is a safety net for Hunt County residents. 

The Eat Well Live Well slogan developed out of our desire to go above and beyond providing only canned goods and pantry staples by ensuring that the poorest in our county have access to fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs, milk, lean ground turkey, and chicken. Each year, HCSM distributes over $1,000,000 in food resources. It is a well, known fact that a child who eats will have a better opportunity to be physically and mentally healthy and to be successful in school. Many senior adults are faced with the choice about whether to fill a necessary prescription or buy food. A mother cannot concentrate at work if she’s worried about what the family will eat for dinner, and a father should not have to go to bed hungry because he sacrificed a meal for his children. 

From our humble beginnings as a small food pantry, HCSM has developed numerous programs in addition to providing nutritious food resources to improve the lives of Hunt County Families. Families in our community experience firsthand the reality of job loss, illness, abuse and other family crises.

During these trying times, HCSM can help families move beyond the crisis and get back on their feet. If this ministry can ease the stresses that families find themselves under these days, interject a sense of hope rather than desperation and calm the fears associated with a job loss or family illness, then HCSM can help families begin to Live Well.

Along with our partners, HCSM helps over 19,000 families. So, whether you choose to join our team as a volunteer, become a donor, or refer a family that needs our services, you can feel confident that you are helping us to make a difference in helping all members of our community Eat Well and Live Well.
