THE LORD’S FOOD PANTRY – A CRY FOR HELP!
Due to the Corona Virus impact on the local Food Pantry(s), the amount of food being delivered for distribution has dramatically increased. This coming week in particular, large deliveries are expected and will need to be distribute per the schedule below.
Many hands are needed. Please review the schedule below, and see where you can help. As we all know, the need in our community is great for those with food insecurities. Please help. Reach out to Carol Kendall ([email protected], 336-689-5603) if you can be of assistance.
Our community is really suffering from the effects of COVID 19.
As a result, the Lord’s Food Pantry is struggling to keep pace with the need. This crisis has put a huge strain on the availability of food at a time when we have an increased number of families to feed.
There were 2,412 meals distributed in one Saturday alone in April!
In the past, the Postal Service Food Drive was a huge help in raising money to fund the pantry, but that did not happen this year due to the shutdown.
At Camp we have a major opportunity to support nutritional needs in Brunswick County by volunteering and donating. To help this situation, you may drop off food during our “drive thru food pantry donation drop off”. It is from 4-6 on Wednesdays at Camp.
We are asking members to drive up to the Pantry so volunteers can take food donations from their cars. If this food drive process works well, we might hold another drive and ask for the entire community to participate.
We need volunteers to help collect food.
Please let Carol Kendall ([email protected]) know if you can help – see schedule above.
We need everyone who is able to donate!
We know that people are looking for ways to help! Here is the perfect solution! Let us all be the “Hands and Feet” of Christ that we are called to be and be generous with our donations of both time and food items.

- Canned Vegetables – low sodium preferred
