The Mill Grove Food Pantry has partnered with Common Heart Ministries to better meet the needs of the hungry in our community. We now participate in serving over 400 families a month in two unique ways:
Mill Grove Food Delivery Teams
Families can contact the church office at (704) 882-3770 if in need of food on a regular basis. Families are assigned to a Mill Grove Food Delivery team who delivers food once a month to the home of the family. Each team delivers to the same family each month to build a trusted relationship as a means to minister to the families where they are. If home delivery is not an option for a family they can participate in the TEFAP on Monday evenings, but cannot receive both home delivery and TEFAP.
TEFAP Monday Night Distribution
Monday Night Food Distribution is held in the Hemby Bridge Campus Worship Center from 7:00-8:00pm as part of TEFAP (The Emergency Food Assistance Program). Food stamp families automatically qualify and can bring their card to receive food once a month (as mandated by the program procedures). Families not on food stamps but in a temporary hardship due to illness or job loss may also come once a month and receive food as needed. No appointment needed.
