How To Help

We take donations large and small of non-perishable foods. Small individual packages are best as we cannot repackage "bulk" items. We cannot hand out food that is past its expiration date.

We love food drives! Consider having your school, class, youth group, Scout troop, workplace, or other group or organization conduct a food drive any time of the year. Please contact Roxanne McIngvale at 901-647-6655 or to discuss a donation drop-off or your organization's community service ideas.

You can also help by participating in our special event fundraisers, Flock around the Block and Empty Bowls Project.

If you’d like to volunteer to distribute food through the food pantry, contact contact Teri Byrum at 901-277-1261. Volunteers from member churches work a set schedule each month.

To volunteer at upcoming projects or for special needs, contact Roxanne McIngvale at 901-647-6655 or

Of course, we’ll take monetary donations at any time.
