Steve & Susan Stewart

Local to Benton, Louisiana, Steve and Susan Stewart felt a calling to serve their community in November 2022. They started by preparing, cooking, and delivering free meals to community members experiencing illness, loss, or otherwise trying times. As of August 2023, they had served over 800 meals to people and families, from Benton to Stonewall to Ruston. 

Their faith and love for others drives them to continue their mission to help those in need. They hope and plan to continue their ministry, with the support from friends like you, so they help fellow neighbors in need. They and Delivering Hope Ministries truly make this community a better place.
