The Food Box team is thankful to announce that we are back in business! We had a successful Thanksgiving Box handout with 36 families getting a generous food supply for their holiday dinners. This included an abundance of other foods to stock their cupboards this month.
Our food box supplies come from the Marion Polk Food Share (MPFS). MPFS now delivers the supplies, for which we are most thankful! In the past, we had to pick up the food box supplies ourselves from their warehouse.
For December, dates and times for Food Box Distribution will be the 16th and 30th, from 10 am to 12 pm. Starting in January, distribution will be on the 2nd and 4th Thursday, from 10 am to 12 pm.
Several individuals have expressed interest in volunteering opportunities. We would love to utilize more people to be the hands of Jesus! Volunteer dates and times are the distribution Thursdays, 2x a month, from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm. Volunteer roles range from jobs requiring people to lift, carry or push heavy items, walking and stocking tables with designated food supplies, relationship building to providing instruction or support on distribution flow. Experience is not required, just a heart for service unto the Lord.
