Anderson County Pantries
Linden Elementary - August 15, 2020
On Saturday, 15 Aug 2020, we conducted a mobile food pantry, in partnership with TVA. Our location was the Linden Elementary School, Anderson County TN. We worked closely with the school staff, a large group from Grace & Glory Church, and one of our favorites, the youth, and their leaders from Christ Covenant Presbyterian from Farragut. Plus, we had volunteers show from the local community. As always, we had several long-time volunteers from Cornerstone Church.
We provided food for 193 family units, serving 741 individuals overall. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, we still must place the food in the customers car. This greatly limits the one-on-one interaction with the people and volunteers. So, we hope this restriction is lifted real soon. Below are a few pictures from the day. One thing we did not photograph were the rainstorms which drenched us a couple of times during the day.
In the end, talking with a representative from Linden Elementary, she told me, “The people were in awe of the amount of food they were given. As they left, many stopped and told me they never expected this much.”
Many stated, “There must be $3-400 worth of food here.”
And they were right.
