Food Pantry & Clothes Closet
Tabernacle Baptist Church Richmond, VA
Saturday, October 6, 2018, 7am – 12pm
Tabernacle has operated a food pantry since 1978 and started participating in the USDA TEFAP program in 1998. This program is for emergency assistance and participants must meet income guidelines set by the government. With the help of FeedMore (local food bank) and donations from Tabernacle's congregation, we are able to give our neighbors in need 2-3 days of emergency food assistance.
Through the Hunger Ministry, we are actively participating in feeding those in need. This is what Jesus called us to do—to actively participate and engage in the lives of others, especially those in need. The food pantry cannot be present and make a difference in the lives of our neighbors without help. Sign up to volunteer, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
