LoavesAndFishesHuntersville Emergency Food Pantry

Huntersville UMC houses a food pantry that is associated with "Loaves and Fishes" of Mecklenburg County. One of twenty 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 arrival of spring has a major significance for the Food Pantry.  The Postal Carriers Food Drive will be held on Saturday, May 13. This drive provides us with needed donations that help carry us through most of the summer. The postal carriers pick up bags of food left by mailboxes and bring them back to the Huntersville Post Office.  Volunteers then load these donations onto trucks to bring to our pantry.  Upon arrival at the pantry, they are unloaded, weighed, sorted and stored by other volunteers.  This is a HUGE task and takes dozens of volunteers to make it run smoothly.  Volunteers will be needed from around 12 noon until 5 p.m. that day. Check your calendar:  if you are able to spare a couple of hours that day we would love to have you.   No experience necessary!!  We will gladly train you!!  For more details or to let me know you can volunteer that day email me at: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Donations of grits and oatmeal are our food focus items for the month of May.  Nonfood items that we are focusing on this month are any type of toothpaste, toilet paper and bars of soap.  Plastic bags are always needed and appreciated.

Service opportunities are available on Wednesday and Thursday during Food Pantry hours. Call or email me for specific information.

Thank you in advance for you continued support.  Drop in to see us in action any time. Volunteering is a heart warming experience.

In service to Christ,

Wanda
