Huntersville Emergency Food Pantry
Huntersville UMC houses a food pantry that is associated with "Loaves and Fishes" of Mecklenburg County. One of nineteen food pantrys country wide, we are open for clients every Monday - Thursday from 10:00 a.m. until noon. Clients must have a referral and may only come every 45 days. They recieve enough food on each visit to last their family for one week.
The Food Pantry would like to thank all of you who continue to support this ministry of our church. The contributions of your time, food products, and monetary gifts, along with those of the surrounding community, make it possible for us to be able to provide a weeks’ worth of food for each family that is referred to us for services. Thus far for the year we have served 1,188 families which is 3,740 individuals.
Mark your calendars for the upcoming Girl Scout Food Drive. It will be held on Saturday, October 11th. We will be co-coordinating with the Ada Jenkins Center in Davidson where the food will be dropped off. We will need trucks and drivers to bring food back to the church. Sorters and stockers will also be needed. If you are able and willing to help, please contact me as soon as possible. Specific pick up times have not yet been determined but these should be set by the time you receive this newsletter. Any amount of time you can volunteer is greatly appreciated.
This month we are asking for donations of: corn, cut green beans, oatmeal, grits and tuna. We are always in need of plastic bags.
