Avalon Church Opens Food Pantry in Avalon Park

Avalon Church Opens Food Pantry in Avalon Park

By: Jennifer Campos, Director of Outreach and Missions – Avalon Church

It was the beginning of March as we listened to the news, the lockdowns had just stated. Restaurants and businesses were forced to close their door as friends and families being home quarantined. Many were furloughed from jobs or even lost their jobs, their only source of income.

We learned that many families in our own and loved community was being affected, without hesitation and a deep sense of urgency, our church family started the Love Your Neighbor outreach to help families purchase groceries, run errands, pray with our neighbors and be a helping hand.  Requests for provisional food bags started to grow. This is the time we started the Take N’Go and Drop N’Go food pantry. Our neighbors that need the help could come once a day to pick up a provisional food bag with non-perishable canned food, and at the same time, drop off donations of food and clothes to help others in need.

Since March, the Take N’Go food pantry has provided families with over 700 food bags. The white trailer parked in front of Avalon Church has been a great place to come take a bag and share a few items with neighbors.

Families may come Monday to Friday from 9 am – 4 pm when the trailer is open with food bags and ready to receive donations.

We love our community Avalon Park.
