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 pantry has served 151 families or 468 individuals through the first 3 weeks of November. We still have one week to go in what is normally our busiest month of the year. We would like to thank everyone for their generous support during our Thanksgiving drive. Every family that came from the 3rd of November thru the Wednesday before Thanksgiving received food items and a turkey for their Thanksgiving meal. This is due to the generosity of the Ada Jenkins Center, the Kiwanis, and the donations of our community. Each family also received a bag with the toiletry items you so generously donated. Thank you again for touching the lives of so many by supporting our ministry efforts.
I would like to thank all of the volunteers who come and serve in so many different capacities. Their faithfulness to this ministry can be witnessed each and every day. The smile on their faces, the caring and helpful attitude they show the clients they serve is truly an inspiration. This group of individuals logged 518 volunteer hours during the month of October. Drop by to see them in action and perhaps you will want to stay and join the group. We are always looking for new folks. Tasks are varied and we will find something for you that you are comfortable doing.
In Service to Christ,
