Fresh produce at TBOM Feb. 9

Published 8:59 pm Thursday, February 3, 2011

The Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry, supported by Manna FoodBank of Asheville, will be distributing perishable vegetables Wednesday, Feb. 9 from 3:30 – 4:15 p.m. for those who can use this produce. The food is free of charge and must not be resold.

If you need to pick up produce for someone who cannot come to TBOM on this day, they will need a note from that person stating who is picking up the produce for them. It must be signed and a telephone number given for verification of this request.

Outreach never knows until the day before distribution how much or which vegetables will be available. Distribution will be in the Food Pantry located at 134 White Drive in Columbus (take the first road on the left before the Hwy. 74 underpass on Houston Road, after you pass the Columbus Baptist Church).

Participants are asked to bring their own bags or boxes.
