Since opening, February 11, 2006, the Danville United Methodist Church’s Shared Blessings Community Food Pantry has been ministering to those in need of assistance. The food pantry has a NEW location in the lower level of the new section of the Danville United Methodist Church, with accessibility on the East side. It is open during the hours listed below. If you have any questions please contact the church office.
Shared Blessings Celebrates
10 year Anniversary!
Shared Blessings Food Pantry provides food and encouragement to families who struggle to make ends meet. The pantry currently serves 50-75 families per week. Statistics show that there are 15,700 food insecure people in Hendricks County and at least half of these people (nearly 8,000) are not eligible for assistance. Families find their income is not enough to pay bills and provide food for their family, but their income is a little too much to qualify for assistance. These families get help from Shared Blessings.
Tuesday 6:00 – 7:30 P.M.
Pack the Pantry!!!
Donations are always needed and welcome!
* The Gleaners truck delivers on the 3rd Friday of each month.
* Help needed on Tuesdays and/or Fridays, during the day
* The Danville Wal-Mart is donating bakery items / bread / produce, etc. to the local food pantries and we are working on a schedule for pickups / deliveries thru the Food Pantry Coalition. Shared Blessings is open twice a week, so we are first in line for donations. The biggest problem we have is coordinating pickups / deliveries with the preschool hours and having someone available at the church when a delivery needs to be made. If anyone would be interested in helping (on Tuesdays or Fridays) with pickups or with just receiving deliveries, please let Diane know and we can work out details.
* Volunteers needed for summer months to help in the food pantry
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in helping. Many of the regular volunteers aren’t available during the summer months.
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry & feed you, or thirsty & give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger & invite you in, or needing clothes & clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison & go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers & sisters of mine, you did for me.’
