"Just One More Ministry" seeks to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ -- by caring for the poor in Milwaukee.

Just One More Ministry works to care for the poor in spirit, provide them with nutritious meals, and offer help to those who suffer from addiction via a faith-based recovery program.

Just One More Ministry says: "We serve with a passion, to bring Just One More back to Jesus Christ."

In February of 2014, Just One More Ministry moved into a new facility -- the Redeemer Lutheran Church at 19th and Wisconsin. The church has made 3,000 square feet available for Just One More Ministry's work.

This year, Just One More Ministry won the Milwaukee Awards for Neighborhood Development Innovation's "Trailblazer Award."

Just One MOre Ministry began in 2008 as a small and informal food recovery program founded by Chris Capper -- working with Meal Outreach Ministry at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church in Wauwatosa.

The food rescue program grew from a humble beginning of rescuing one box of bread and donating it to a central city church, into its current form rescuing and repackaging prepared food, fresh produce, and bakery from numerous Milwaukee suppliers and redistributing it to 13 Greater Milwaukee inner city churches supporting pantries and community meal ministry programs.

In 2013, Just One More Ministry provided partner churches with over 72,000 meals, 18,000 pounds of fresh fruit, and 48,000 bakery items.

That year -- Just One More Ministry became a non-profit organization.

The organization's founder, Chris Capper appeared on Studio A to talk about Just One More Ministry's mission.
