KSM began as small food share cooperative under the banner of Kerr Street Community Services more than 18 years ago and was formed with the hope of demonstrating God’s love and compassion in practical and tangible ways. Ever since KSM has been connecting with families and developing relationships with people that are in need.

 KSM seeks to understand the struggle of poverty and is committed to coming alongside families and individuals to provide help for the present and hope for the future.
