Food Distribution Volunteer Information 2017
We have an on-site ministry to complement the Free Medical Clinic, Meals on Wheels and AA. This ministry is called Impact Ministries Food Distribution. Every second Saturday of the month St. Paul’s hosts free food distribution in partnership with Feeding America and the Lowcountry Food Bank. During the hours of 9 to 11 am there is also an emergency clothing closet open to our clients, as well as a free legal clinic.
What an exciting new ministry to impact our neighbors! Will you come and help us be Christ to others? Remembering the Great Call that includes providing food to those who hunger, we can do this intentionally now every month. There are many ways:
Food Servers—Needed to work from 8 AM – 12 PM- Responsible for serving breakfast foods to our clients. (biscuits, breakfast bars, coffee, juice, etc.)
Pick up—Need a team of individuals with trucks or SUVs to pick up the food at 9 am from the Food Bank in N. Charleston and deliver it to Skardon Hall Friday before distribution. Also need folks to be available for special pick-ups on Saturday morning, as needed.
