Mobile Pantry: How Can You Help

Mobile Food Pantry:
How can you Help?

Covenant Baptist Church has decided to host AT LEAST 3 Mobile Food Pantries in 2017 in conjunction with The Ark in Pegram, TN and Second Harvest Food bank.

Just what is a Mobile Food Pantry?  
A Mobile Food Pantry is where people in need can come to the church and receive 2-3 weeks of food at no cost to them.  The morning of a Mobile Food Pantry, Second Harvest sends a semi truck full of food to the church.  Volunteers then begin the process of distributing the food to those in need.

How can you help?
Tell anyone you know, who needs food about the food pantry!!
To receive food, simply come to Covenant Baptist Church at 8201 McCrory Lane, Nashville TN 37221 between 9am and noon.  This will be a drive through pantry.  You do not need to sign up for food simply come to the church and someone will take your name and how many people are in your family.  You will then drive through the pantry, and volunteers will have food from second harvest food bank ready to put in your car or truck.  (For more information about The Food Pantry, call The Ark 615-457-1931 or follow this link More Information)

Volunteer!!
We also need volunteers to help setup, distribute and clean up.  We can use anyone who wishes to help regardless of ability or availability.  Set up begins at 7:30 am.  The second harvest truck will arrive at 8am.  Volunteers will then get the food ready to hand out and food distribution will begin at 9am.  At noon we will need help cleaning up the church as well as help to take left over food to The Ark in Pegram.  For more information or if you have questions about volunteering follow this link More Information.

Give!!
To host a Mobile Food Pantry the church needs to raise $3000 per pantry.  This includes the price for food as well as other miscellaneous costs needed for the day. The more money we raise, the more Pantries we can host.
