Food pantry service begins Monday

by Sarah Fay Campbell

A mobile food pantry begins this week, delivering fresh and nonperishable items to churches for the public to pick up.

The pantry is a new outreach of Hill Family Legacy Resource Center. HFL recently moved from Senoia to 1131 Hwy. 16 E, near Dollar General in Newnan.

The first mobile food pantry event will be Monday at White Oak Grove Baptist Church in Senoia. On Wednesday, the truck will be at St. Smyrna Baptist Church, 68 Heery Road, in Newnan. (Call the church for more information at 678-673-6472.)

Saturday’s event will be at By Faith Ministry, 1160 Johnson Road, Senoia.

Additional mobile food pantry events will be held Friday, March 21 at Redeemer Church of God In Christ in Moreland and March 22 at Greater Pineview Pure Holiness Church in Senoia.

Events run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., or while the supplies lasts. Those who would like to receive food items must bring a photo ID and be asked to complete intake paperwork.

Thanks to a grant, the HFL Resource Center additionally received a refrigerated truck capable of holding eight to 10 pallets of food.

Those needing more information may contact Sona Dunlap of HFL at 770-906-4286.
