In 1981 the Edmonds United Methodist Church opened up a closet to feed 30 families a week. In 2008 this food bank serves 230 families a week. Edmonds is an affluent community 15 minutes north of downtown Seattle.
Early 2015 Michael Freckleton M.D. a radiologist, and also the San Antonio, Texas West Stake, Stake President, was able to attend a presentation of an aquaponics system at a gardening exposition. With being to participate in medical humanitarian work around the world Michael Freckleton M.D. wondered if this could be the answer to a solution to help bring protein and calories in imbalanced diets that will cause medical problems with lifelong consequences.
Michael Freckleton was familiar with the excellent work that was being done by the San Antonio Food Bank in feeding needy people throughout south central Texas. With the support of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, Michael Freckleton approached the San Antonio Food bank and offered if they provide the land, they would build a prototype aquaponics systems with the following objectives:
– “Provide a working aquaponics system that would grow plants and fish for use by the food bank.
– Allow the San Antonio, Texas West Stake with hands- on experience with system development, that they might be able to create designs that would be appropriate for use in needy areas, including the developing world.
– Create a beautiful garden for the food bank, where people be able to come and imagine a home-based system in their own back yard.”
Michael Freckleton has referred this is as an “imaginarium” where people could envision what they could do to provide for their own needs.
In the fall of 2016, they began the design of the system and they received approximately a hundred people helping in labor. They also had help in design, and materials from good people who supported their goals. Many provided knowledge and information to help the process. Although the process took longer than expected to be complete by late spring of 2017 the system was ready to “cycle.”
“Cycle is a the process in wherein the water runs from the fish tank into the grow beds and then back again, allowing a culture of naturally occurring bacteria to grow in the beds and maturing the water so that it would be suitable for the fish.”
In the early summer of 2017 over 500 tilapia were introduced and herbs planted in the grow beds. The process will take several months for the grow beds to support a broader variety of pants. In the fall of 2017, winter crops will be introduced. The fish will take nine to twelve months to be able harvest. Tilapia fish are easy to breed in captivity and the hope is to have a renewable source of fish into the future.

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day the Treasure Coast Food Bank in Fort Pierce is packing meals to help the more than 1,000 federal workers and their families.
Volunteers were busy in Fort Pierce boxing food for federal employees in need amid the partial government shutdown.
In our fast-paced, technology-driven society, elderly people can often feel a little left behind. But when one senior citizen from California encountered a bureaucratic problem at his bank, it required a heroic police officer to save the day. And his actions were truly heart-warming.
A 92-year-old man walked into his local Bank of America branch one day in September 2017, hoping to withdraw some money from his account. His name was Jesus Rangel and he lived in Montebello, a city in the county of Los Angeles, California.
Unfortunately for Rangel, it wasn’t such a straightforward procedure. What should have taken just a couple of minutes ended up becoming a real headache for the elderly gentleman. There was an important reason why the bank clerk couldn’t carry out his request, however.

‘Prayer Changes Hearts’: President Trump Honors God’s Redemptive Work in Former Bank Robber’s Life
Largo Police want to identify a bank robbery suspect who they say may have also robbed a bank in Clearwater Friday.
U-S President Bill Clinton is shaken but safe after experiencing a rocky ride through a thunderstorm on the Presidential plane Air Force One.
Air Force One departed from New Mexico on Tuesday night when it hit heavy turbulence flying over Texas.
President Clinton was on his way to South Carolina to tour the ruins of a church burned to the ground in a spate of arson attacks.
President Clinton left New Mexico on Air Force One, unaware of the violent thunderstorm awaiting him over the Texas skies.
The Presidential plane departed Albuquerque on Tuesday night and was cruising at 33,000 feet when it suddenly hit a bank of thunderstorms.
The pilot climbed to 37,000 feet to escape the storms but the plane was still rocked by heavy turbulence.
Inside the plane Mexican dishes that were about to be served ended on the floor, and plates and glasses shattered.
The president, however, was not injured and answered reporters’ questions about his trip to South Carolina.
Q: Could you give us an idea on what you are going to say in the church tomorrow?
A: I’m going to say it tomorrow. You know what I am going say, I’m going to say what I’ve been saying about this. I’m encouraged by the rebuilding they are doing and I want to reaffirm to everybody in this country that we are going to keep working until we get to the bottom of all these cases.
SUPER CAPTION: Bill Clinton, President of the United States
The plane landed safely in Charleston in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
