Lydia and Kathy Prater are the co-chairs and are working to get us started with the new food ministry program - South HallCommunity Food Pantry (SHCFP). We love to have fun as volunteers that can work one or both of our scheduled days of Monday 4:00p – 6:00p and Saturday 10:00a – 12:00 noon. We need to have 4-6 people each day.
The food pantry is open this Monday, 1/10 from 4:00p – 6:00p, Thursday, 1/13 from 10a – 12p or Saturday, 1/15 from 10a – 12p. You can go by and introduce yourself and they will be happy to show you the ropes.
Lydia is putting together a sign-up sheet for you to sign up the dates you can work.
FBUMC is scheduled every six weeks – Monday and Saturday. She will have the sign-up sheet available on Sunday.
Lydia or Kathy will pick-up the bread from Publix on Wednesdays of our week.
Thank you for volunteering your time and talents to this worthy cause.
We Thank You for your continued support!
Thanks to all of you who donated to the Food Ministry food drives. We have had enough food to feed approximately 45 families each month.
If you would like to make a donation or help in this ministry, please call the church office at (770) 967-3441 and you will be blessed beyond imagination!
Partnering with the South Hall Community Food Pantry, Inc., members of the Food Ministry team are a hardy bunch. It was 32 degrees as they served 12 families with over 500 lbs of groceries. Thank you for supporting this vital ministry in our community with your time and donations.

The Food Ministry of Flowery Branch UMC is supervised by Kathy Prater and Bea Simmonds and is supported by members of the congregation. Help is provided to families in the Flowery Branch area and to children during the summertime and during school year vacations.
Each week, more than 170 people are assisted. This number increases to close to 400 over the summer months.
We welcome monetary donations to the Food Ministry. We are fortunate to be able to buy food at wholesale prices and your donations will let us take advantage of special bulk purchases.
