Food Pantry Weekly, 25May2016

Greetings Foodies!
It was a great day at the Food Pantry as we served 66 households!
Join the team: The food pantry has the following volunteer needs! Training will be provided.
(1) One driver & one helper to pick up food at Central Texas Food Bank.  We use UHAUL vans to transport food so you don’t need a large vehicle of your own. You do need to be able to safely lift and transfer 50 pounds.  Total time is from about 9:30 – 1:00 on Tuesdays, alternating months with another volunteer. This may be just for the Summer or it may be longer if you like it! 
(2) Help with annual re-registration of clients 4:00 – 7:00 Wednesdays beginning July 6. We will need the most help the first 2-3 weeks. Spanish and Vietnamese speakers especially valuable! There will be a mandatory training class the prior week.
 
(3) Receive Whole Food Deliveries. Cover for a vacationing volunteer Fridays July 1-29.  Be at church at 2:00, bring in, weigh and put away food. 
For more information about any of the above opportunities, contact Carl at 512-940-3975 or email.  
If you are interested in exploring a leadership position in the Food Pantry, please contact Carl or Pastor Stella.
And as always, please pray for all our clients,
Carl Wilson
