Laura Derr, a member at First United Methodist Church in Farragut, sends us a press release a few times year, announcing the next “mobile food pantry” for the community.
It’s a joint project between First Farragut and Central United Methodist Church in Lenoir City, Tennessee. The press releases come in both English and Spanish.
“People lined outside Central’s sanctuary Saturday morning before being taken through in groups of about 25 to select food provided by Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee. Church youth then helped load the food into vehicles,” the News-Herald/ Citizen Tribune reported. “Visitors could also pick up gently used clothing and school supplies.”
The newspaper story shares all the good that was done, including 233 families served with food. 402 children received school supplies, and 235 coats were given out in preparation for the return back to school.
I hope to check out the mobile food pantry out myself next time! It’s always so good to see churches working together.
