Recently, First United Methodist Church of West Memphis partnered with the Mid-South Food Bank for their first mobile food pantry to provide groceries to food-insecure residents.
Volunteers from the church sorted, bagged, and boxed food, which was provided by the Mid-South Food Bank, for people to pick up.
“We loaded trucks, back seats, hatches, and hands for our community residents and they so appreciated it,” the church said in a post on their Facebook page. “The line [of cars] stretched as far as you could see down Pine St. Seeing the people’s faces as they left with needed supplies was a blessing to us as well as to our community.”
“We are so thankful for our volunteers who worked out in the heat, making our residents’ day a little bit better. Many thanks to the Mid-South Food Bank for all their efforts and foods,” the Facebook post continued. “Thanks to Pastor Carissa, Pastor George, and all who helped make today such a great day!”
