News from the Pantry
There is always a lot of activity during the week at our pantry where we serve those most in need. On Wednesdays we pick up food from the Food Bank of Manatee, deliver it to our church grounds, and then sort it into boxes making sure that each box contains a variety of nutritious foodstuffs, including breads, vegetables, protein, etc. On Thursday mornings over 100 boxes are distributed to the homeless and those having financial difficulties. And, of course, all of this includes God’s Grace and the Word as we strive to fill not only the emptiness of their stomachs, but the void that many feel within their souls.
