We are continuing to work with potential agency sites for the expansion of the Pop Up Pantry on Thursday afternoons. Our newest expansion site, Wedgewood Village Apartments, has been on hold due to staffing issues. In the meantime, we are working with another agency, Franklinton Farms, to onboard in early September.
We are blessed by our Pop Up Pantry team members who continue to serve our clients each week. We are grateful that Kitty Rohrer will be returning to our team after taking a break to do some contingent work for the state and getting ready to move from her home of over 40 years. We are praying for our co-lead, Melody Smiley, who is caring for her husband, Matt, at home.
We will continue to provide updates as we move forward with our expansion plans. We are grateful for the opportunity each week to serve families with food insecurity and continue our outreach ministry of the church.
