The My Little Pantry (MLP) ministry is a tremendous opportunity for FMUMC families to help support our neighbors at the Rocky Point Mobile Home Park.
The MLP is a small enclosed and raised cabinet located behind the Shiloh Church, 6500 Cross Timbers Rd, Flower Mound, TX 75022. The MLP is located in the NE corner of the yard, and stands near a gated fence that allows access from Rocky Point into the church yard. The MLP is filled with food products that the Rocky Point families can take as needed, with an emphasis on healthy snack food for the children. Volunteers from FMUMC supply the pantry on a twice-weekly basis.
We are seeking volunteers (individuals, families, Sunday school class, home group, etc...) for every week of the year. You may choose to sign up for either mid-week or the weekend to fill the My Little Pantry. Please tidy up the pantry and any trash around the MLP. If you see anything that needs repair, please contact Britt Wilson at 940.595.8064 or [email protected]
Please choose individual food items in weather-resistant plastic or foil containers. (Cardboard & paper packaging deteriorates quickly.) Recommended kid-friendly foods include individual cups of macaroni & cheese, mini ravioli, beanie weenies, instant lunch cups, fruit cups, applesauce pouches, granola/breakfast bars, and peanut butter-filled or cheese-filled crackers. We've found that canned food does not get used.
***Since the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak, and the need for additional food, we've seen that tortillas (corn or flour), bags of uncooked pinto beans, black beans, and long grain rice have also been a huge hit.
The cost to fill up the pantry should be $25-30.
Location: Shiloh Church, 6500 Cross Timbers Rd, Flower Mound, TX 75022
