CHURCH GNOMES FOR THE MONTH
The Food Pantry Volunteers
As you may or may not know, the Food Pantry has relocated downstairs and changed its hours. Our Food Pantry is now open Monday from 12-5 and Thursday from 8-1. With the larger space the Food Pantry now also has a place for people to have coffee and a treat, a clothing table, and a book lending shelf. In addition to adding practical value, these additions have helped people have a place to relax and socialize thereby forming relationships with each other and our church.
The hours and space reconfigurations have changed the time and volunteer requirements for preparing the space and gathering the food. Volunteers go to the Southeast Food Band on Mondays, and Wednesdays if needed, at 9:30 a.m. to pick up food. If there is not enough at the Southeast Food Bank, they then go to the grocery stores to supplement. The amount of preparation time needed to be open for 10 hours a week is about 10 hours a week as well.
Once all the food is stocked, the coffee is made and the doors open, the volunteers start by signing people in. People sign in either with a card that tracks the number on monthly visits or with a notebook that is open at the front of the main table. At this point, volunteers collect information regarding the number of people in the family After sign in, the volunteers start filling bags with food enough for two or three meals for the family. This is a one on one experience for the people who come to the Food Pantry. The volunteer asks them what type of proteins, grains, fruits, and vegetables they would like as they fill the bags.
With the added space and the added need in our community, Resurrection has been feeding more people every month. This would not be possible without the Food Pantry Gnomes!! They give their time and vehicles to keep our shelves stocked, Food Pantry open and our community fed. If you are interested in volunteering with the Food Pantry in any way, please talk to Adam Garner, Bill Bahleda or Karen Lawfer.
