Food Pantry Ministry
In 2014, during Rev. Richard Soper’s tenure at HUMC, the Food Pantry ministry expanded. It was entitled “Your one can, can make a difference.” Food donations were brought to church every Communion Sunday. An empty room was available and the food pantry had a home base. Monthly food donations, Trick or Eat foods and monetary gifts keep the pantry stocked.
Then in 2018 our church joined the local Backpack ministry sponsored by Antioch Baptist Church. We donate $225 per month and some of our members help with packing the food sacks every third Thursday. Over 80 sacks are given to local school students every Friday . . . all due to your generosity.
Milton Sutherlin is our Food Pantry coordinator.
