The distribution is on the FOURTH Thursday of each month (distribution ison the THIRD Thursday in November and December) from 10:00-11:30 a.m. and is currently being offered as a "drive-thru" service due to COVID-19 safety concerns. Participants are asked to line up in the Family Life Center parking lot lcoated at 15 W. El Paso Street, and to please be curteous in regard to not blocking our neighbors' driveways.
If you would like to volunteer with the GUMC Food Bank, contact the church office at (479) 996-6397.
