Thank you for being interested in volunteering to help distribute food to the Charlottesville Community. Portico Church is partnering with Bethel Church with the mission to fulfill one of the basic needs of humanity, “hunger”, by supplying wholesome and nutritional food at no cost to the recipient. This Food Distribution Program supports the nutritional needs of individuals by providing wholesome food to supplement their diet, while helping stretch their food dollars. Volunteers distribute the nutritious, pre-packaged, shelf-stable boxes weekly. Each box contains nutrient-rich food, e.g. fruit and vegetables, that help improve the overall health status of individuals and families. Future items will include a variety of dairy, meats, and cheeses.
Every other Saturday starting at 8:30am we will meet the truck at Buford Middle School to load up the boxes and distribute them to the communities at Friendship Court, 6th Street, and Crescent Hall. We are looking to have 10 people help each Saturday, and it would be appreciated if anyone has a vehicle to help transport the boxes. Sign ups are below, and if you have any questions, please email Pastor Desmond at [email protected] Thanks!
