This has been a difficult year for our local emergency food bank with demand being higher while at the same time donations have been down.
Recently, Rev. John Wesley Hembree of First United Methodist Church Woodbury presented a check to our local Food bank for $750 from the United Methodist people of Cannon County.
“Our Churches throughout the area receive a special hunger offering each year and divide up the resources among the organizations that are feeding the hungry” according to Hembree.
First Methodist of Woodbury also specifies one food item each month that members bring to worship, and leave in a special collection bin. The item is collected each Sunday during the month and at the end of the month that item is donated to the Food Bank.
