Mobile Food Pantry Open to Everyone

Canned-FoodsThe Mobile Food Pantry will be in Manchester tonight at New Life Assembly. The Mobile Food Pantry was pushed back one week because of Manchester’s Window Walk last Thursday. For the past year and a half, New Life Assembly has partnered with Northeast Iowa Food Bank in Waterloo to provide a Mobile Food Pantry the first Thursday of each month. It is available to anyone – there are no income or residence requirements. Doors open at 4 pm and distribution starts at 5 pm, with handicapped and very elderly individuals going first. You are asked to bring your own sacks, boxes or laundry baskets to hold the food. The Mobile Food Pantry appears to be meeting a definite need – last month, the Mobile Food Pantry served one-hundred twenty-four families in the Manchester community.
