Free fresh produce available at Outreach Dec. 7

Published 4:14 pm Friday, December 2, 2011

Perishable vegetables will be distributed from the Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry (Outreach) Food Pantry on Wednesday, Dec. 7, beginning at 3:30 p.m. while the supply 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 Outreach. 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 at this time, please bring a signed note from the individual, providing the name and phone number of the person they would like to pick up food on their behalf.
Outreach does not know the quantity or type of vegetables that will be available until the day before distribution. Please come directly to the 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).
The first distribution for 2012 will occur Tuesday, Jan. 10.
For more information about produce day or to learn more about the vegetables that will be available that day, call Outreach at 828-894-2988.
Anyone who is interested in applying for assistance from Outreach but is unable to come into the office during regular business hours, may schedule an after-hours appointment by calling Michelle Reedy at 828-894-2988 x132.
