The Food Distribution Ministry is looking for new volunteers to help with the food distribution day (the 4th Saturday of each month) from 8:00 – Noon. We also need people to help make bags and bag fresh produce. The dates vary on any given months. If you are interested please contact our church office through email or at 301.937.7114. This is a fantastic way for students to get service hours for school.
The Emmanuel Food Bank:
The Emmanuel Food Bank is a group that helps local families who are in need of food in a variety of ways. There are monthly food distributions that take place on the 4th Saturday of each month and an emergency food pantry for families in need. They give out free boxes of food on the 4th Saturday of every month from 8:00 am to 11:30. If you are in need before the 4th Saturday. Also, we provide a food pantry in case you won't make it to the fourth Saturday. You can contact our office at 301.937.7114 or email@example.com for assistance.
What goes into the Food Distribution Ministry?
We are blessed to have this awesome outreach ministry at Emmanuel. I’m not sure that our members realize the time commitment that it takes to make this ministry a success. First of all, we want to thank all of the many volunteers for coming out and helping on the 4th Saturday of the month. Perhaps you are not able to help during that weekend and want to help with this vital ministry. Did you know there are other opportunities to help?
Below are opportunities that are available throughout the month:
Every Monday……………...Pick up Chic-Fil-A Donations
If this looks like something you may be interested in, please contact us t firstname.lastname@example.org or 301.937.7114
