Mobile Food Pantry this Wednesday, Jan. 27th

It’s time for the next Mobile Food Pantry, so please help spread the news to those friends and family that may need a little help stretching their food budget.  This is a great way to do just that!

The truck will arrive at noon at the Expo Center, and we can use many hands to help unload and set up.  We will then need  extra hands to help pass out the items once the doors open @ 4:30, so please plan on being the hands and feet of Jesus!  So, please encourage those who many need a “s-t-r-e-t-c-h” in food to come pick some up!

The doors will open from 4:30 – 6:00 for the food distribution.
