Food Pantry Weekly, 22Jun2016

Greetings Foodies!
.
It was a great day at the Food Pantry!  The abundance of donated food continues to amaze us. Just this week we received 1892 pounds, in addition to the 766 pounds we received directly from Central Texas Food Bank. 2658 pounds of food. That’s 36 pounds for each household tonight. What a blessing. I love to overhear one client happily telling another how she was going to cook this or that she was taking home from Covenant tonight.  In the midst of the huge daily struggles many of them have, a little hope, a little bit of normalcy, God’s Grace.
.
Come join us on Wednesday at 5:00 to see first hand. And if you are interested in exploring a leadership position in the Food Pantry, please contact Carl or Pastor Stella.
.
Thank you to all our supporters and volunteers, and as always, please pray for all our clients.
