Adventist Community Services has been helping meet people’s need of food Since December 2016, by partnering with Harvester's The Community Food Network at the church on the 3rd Monday of each month.
WE ARE TRULY SORRY THAT WE HAD TO CANCEL THE AUGUST FOOD DROP DUE TO TRUCK BREAKDOWN. WE DID NOT RESCHEDULE IT BECAUSE IT IS NOT EASY HAVING ENOUGH VOLUNTEERS WHEN DATES ARE CHANGED.
WE WILL HAVE THE FOOD DROP ON THE THIRD MONDAY IN SEPTEMBER ON THE 18TH. PLEASE BE IN LINE BY 8:00. WE HAVE A NEW DRIVER AND WE DON'T KNOW WHAT TIME HE WELL ARRIVE.
Anyone with a perceived need for food is welcome to receive food by bringing their vehicle and be in line by 8:00 a.m. (Follow the cars all the way around the cul-de-sac, do not turn into the church lot until you have been all the way down on the right and back up.) We ask that you follow simple safety rules which are stay in your car, have your trunk open and cleaned out in order to hold the food being provided. We also try to avoid putting food in the passenger compartment of your vehicle to comply with the CDC guidelines for close contact.
PLEASE LISTEN TO KDKD RADIO 95.3 FM FOR ANY CLOSING DURING BAD WEATHER.
- FOR OUR VOLUNTEERS AND YOUR OWN SAFETY, WE ASK THAT YOU STOP AT EACH SAFETY CONE AND PUT YOUR TRANSMISSION IN PARK TO PREVENT ROLLING FORWARD. THE VOLUNTEER AT EACH STATION WILL LET YOU KNOW WHEN IT IS SAFE FOR YOU TO PULL FORWARD TO THE NEXT SAFETY CONE.
To obtain food there is no qualifying. Be a person or family in need of temporary food assistance. Sign in with the person at the entrance, with name of the head of house and in the appropriate squares the number of, Adults (18-64), Childres (birth t0 18) and Seniors (65+) in your household. Food is divided per household, NOT BY the number of people in a household. We ask that you be honest in signing up only for the number of households you actually pick up food for. We also ask that if you cannot use all that you receive, you share with family, friends and neighbors or take the time to preserve it through canning or freezing. We also ask that if you pick up at our church distribution (on the third Monday of each month), you give others in need, the opportunity to pick up at other locations.
Want to be involved? You can volunteer to help set up and distribute food and clean up after it is over. We often need help packaging loose food items before we start the line moving through. Volunteer Workers are allowed to go through the line on an alternating basis. Approximately 4-5 hours of work. Dress properly for the weather, with closed toe shoes. We have safety vests. Community Service hours can be accounted for with proper paperwork. Please Call MARVA WELBORN FOR MORE INFORMATION ON VOLUNTEERING.
