Free fresh produce offered at Outreach Ministry Oct. 12

Published 6:14 pm Friday, October 7, 2011

Perishable vegetables and fruit will be distributed from the Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry (TBOM) food pantry on Wednesday, Oct. 12, beginning at 3:30 p.m. while sssupply lasts. The food is provided by Manna FoodBank of Asheville for free distribution to any member of the community as part of the partnership arrangement between Manna and TBOM. The food must not be resold and participants are asked to bring their own bags or boxes.
If you need to pick up produce for someone who cannot come to Outreach on this day, TBOM will need a note from that person stating who is picking up the produce on their behalf. The note must be signed and must include a telephone number for verification.
TBOM never knows until the day before distribution what items or how many items will be available.
Distribution will take place at TBOM’s food pantry located at 134 White Drive in Columbus (pass the Columbus Baptist Church on Houston Road, turn left on White Drive before going under the Hwy. 74 bridge).
Future distribution dates are: Nov. 9 and Dec. 7.
Anyone interested in applying for assistance from TBOM but unable to come into the office during regular business hours may schedule an after-hours appointment by calling Michelle at 828-894-2988.
For more information about produce day or to learn more about the items that will be available that day, please call TBOM at 828-894-2988.
