On Saturday, 1 Feb 2020, we conducted a mobile food pantry, in partnership with United Health Care. Our location was at Washburn Community School in Granger County. We worked closely with the Johnson Chapel Church and their on-fire pastor, Greg Hurst. Along with volunteers from Compassion Ministries, Johnson Chapel brought along 54 helpers with lots of Energy. Principle Ginny McElhaney, people from the local community, and others from around Cornerstone Church came together with us to feed the hungry of this community. We provided food for over 273 families and served a total of 887 people.
Besides feeding the hungry, we worked with Pastor Hurst and his congregation was to teach/lead them in how to conduct a mobile food pantry. Their hearts are burdened for their community’s hungry and they want to begin their own pantries. Here are some photos of the pantry. It was a blessing to all the workers and most assuredly to those who received the food.
