FOOD PANTRY UPDATE February 2021
Food Pantry Coordinator –
Despite the Coronavirus pandemic our food pantry was able to serve 410 households/families in 2020. All totaled that’s 1,014 individuals served, with the overwhelming majority being New Market residents. The food pantry continues to operate on a call-in food request basis and distributes food to clients on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We will continue this mode of operation until the church guidelines for COVID are lifted and vaccines are widespread.
