Food Pantry Facts for November

Food Pantry

Mark your calendars! The last Sunday of the month, November 25, is Food Pantry Sunday! We ask that you bring dried milk, tooth paste, soap, deodorant, and hygiene products.

The “little food pantry with a BIG heart” needs your help.  We are looking for volunteers to help with distribution Monday or Tuesday from 1–2 p.m., and also with Food Bank pick-ups on Mondays which usually takes about one to two hours between 8–10 a.m.  If you can help, please contact Juan Fuentes 901-849-7033 or juanjf7777 [at] aol [dot] com, or Gayle Evans 901-355-5065 or evansgayled [at] gmail [dot] com.  Thank you for your consideration.
