In cooperation with the Mid-South Food Bank three of the United Methodist Neighborhood Centers food pantries became a distribution point for the State of Tennessee Commodities Program. Sigh-up for the program began in August and the first food distributions were in September. Grace UMC, Scott Center and Heartsong Church food pantries became the new distribution sites whereas Smith Center continued its existing distributions. Warren UMC food pantry would like to begin serving commodities but parking and truck unloading became an issue. We continue to pray for a positive solution to reach the people in 38109 zip code.
