USDA Food Giveaway returns to Scottsbluff
SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP) - As part of the USDA’s Farm to Table Food Program, a September distribution of food will be given to area families in need on Wednesday, Sept. 16, beginning at 12 p.m.
In partnership with Cash-WA Food Distributors, First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) will distribute food boxes each to 75 families. The Farm to Table program requires each family to receive one box of fruits and vegetables and one half-gallon of milk.
“In this time of uncertainty, growing unemployment, grief, and perceived scarcity, our faith community is reaching out with God’s Good News of ‘Enough for All,’” said Pastor Nona. “When generous and compassionate folks are willing to share from their abundance, there will always be enough – even among those who are most vulnerable in these times. The number of people we are feeding from our Food Pantry doors is growing – not because of scarcity – but because there really is enough from God’s bounty for us to share.”
If you would like to receive food assistance, the food distribution will be taking place at First Christian Church at 2102 Avenue A, Scottsbluff at 12pm.
The church also offers a regular “Pastor’s Pantry ministry” which operates weekly Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There are no prerequisites for receiving food from the pantry. Those in need can receive one box of food per household per month.
