Taijhe: Cheryl gave me a brief history about how the pantry go started.
Cheryl: It started on Grover and 44th St. at a church at um, It was called Grover Lutheran Church, it was our multi-site. We had a congregation there just to get another um, another church started in that area. and then the district asked us to start a church over there. One lady that was going over there decided that she wanted to start a food pantry. and so it started over there and they probably had 30 families about what we had, and it just kept growing, and grew to 60. and then we were in a very little closet room at this other church in the basement and they finally moved it out to the bigger area of the basement from that point on our numbers grew and we hit 130.
Taijhe: She also gave me a brief description about how they found a new place to hold the food pantry.
Cheryl: Right when we thought the whole thing was going to going to go under um the pastor here is the pastor at our church at Beautiful Savior. and then let us have this room for storing the food. So that’s been wonderful.
Taijhe: I asked where they get the food to supply the food pantry.
Cheryl: All the food we get comes from the food bank or its donated from our congregation. Um, this month in November were doing a food drive. Last Sunday, we handed a bag to every family in church. and we asked them to fill it and bring it back. We usually have good success with that. That’s another we get food.
