The Sherbourne UMC Food Pantry is an intake and distribution center for the Central Virginia FoodBank.
Donations of non perishable food items can be brought to Missions Central (near the church offices) anytime, but we especially focus on this ministry the 1st Sunday of each month when we have Communion in our Worship services. We continue to also collect paper bags, plastic bags, and clean egg cartons in Missions Central.
Thanks to all who provided food this winter to help feed the 60 to 85 families Sherbourne serves every week. Families are served only once a month and receive a grocery bag or two of nonperishable items to supplement their food needs.
A special thanks to Upward Basketball players who provided literally tons of food for Sherbourne. Each week players filled Mission Central with items requested by the Food Pantry – canned fruits, vegetables and beans, cereal, mac-n-cheese, peanut butter, canned tuna and chicken, canned meals, and pasta and sauce. Each week we delivered a truckload of food! Many thanks also to Circle 10 for their donation of both food and funds.
Please continue to remember those in our community in need of food assistance. Let’s continue to send loaded trucks to Sherbourne.
