A special thank you goes out to US Bank & Elavon for the use of their Parking lot.

Emerald Youth Foundation - - August 28, 2021
We had a wonderful mobile food pantry on Saturday, 28 August 2021, at the Emerald Youth Center,
Lonsdale Community, North Knoxville TN. It was a beautiful day but extremely hot. We served 282+
customers and provided food for 121 families for a separate pantry sponsored by the Lonsdale United
Methodist Church. The total number of family members served was 1,435.
Compassion Ministries worked together with United Health Care, the United “In-As-Much” Movement
(who held many community activities around Knoxville), the Lonsdale Community Food Council, and
numerous churches from within the city of Knoxville. It was wonderful working together with them all to
serve the large Guatemalan population and other residents in the Lonsdale community.
We were blessed to have the Reid and Bellas families from Murfreesboro and Springfield who provided
fresh grilled hot dogs and hamburgers to our customers and volunteers. This was a super treat to all
attendees, and we thank them for their service.

Sarah Moore Greene School - October 27, 2018
On Saturday, October 28th, Compassion Ministries partnered with United Health Care to conduct a Mobile Pantry at Sarah Moore Greene School. Christ Covenent and Grace and Glory churches provided abundant help to make this pantry successful serving 368 families representing 1326 people! One young man who came told about his mother needing food but unable to come because she had Alzheimer's. When food was given to him for his mother, he cried. Serving in Jesus' name is awesome!
