Three local churches are hosting food giveaways.
Snow Hill Baptist Church will have a drive thru food pick up on Sunday, October 18th at 1:30 p.m.. Please line up on the East side of the Church and drive around. Someone will put the food in your car. Stay inside your car; no restrooms will be available. Services are at 10:00 each Sunday morning. Everyone is welcome. Todd Pack is the Pastor.
Meanwhile the Smithville AG Harvest Food Giveaway will be Saturday, October 24 from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. The drive thru pick-up is located in the rear of the church. Anyone is welcome to come and receive fresh food, produce, meats, and dairy all packaged together while supplies last.
The Smithville Cumberland Presbyterian Church is again sponsoring a drive thru mobile food pantry on Saturday, October 31 from 9 a.m. until noon rain or shine.
The church plans to prepare enough food boxes to serve up to 300 families regardless of their income status, on a first come, first served basis.
Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. and the food will be distributed starting at 9:00 a.m. Unlike most food distributions, those being served by the mobile pantry will not have to get out of their automobiles. They will drive thru in a pickup line and volunteers will deliver the food directly to their vehicles, placing the food boxes either in the back seat or trunk. Cars will line up facing north on College Street across from the Smithville Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
“We will line up right across from the church (Smithville Cumberland Presbyterian Church) on College Street. We’ll start registration at 8:00 a.m. We’ll need the name of the recipients and how many families are being served. We’re limited to two families per vehicle to make sure we have enough food,” added Isaac Gray, Minister of the Smithville Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
Others who wish to volunteer may show up Saturday, October 31 or call for more information at 615-684-5307.
