Joseph’s Storehouse volunteers prepared a sweet surprise for the August food giveaway.
Each person who receives food will also receive a Ferrero Rocher chocolate and hazelnut confectionery.
Joseph’s Storehouse food ministry co-founder Peggy Evans invites anyone who is in need of food to attend the giveaway Aug. 23 for those with a doctor’s note and Aug. 25 from 8:30-11:30 a.m. for families in Wilson, Trousdale, Smith and DeKalb counties.
First-time applicants must be able to show proof of residency with a utility bill, rent receipt or lease; photo identification such as a driver’s license or picture ID; and proof of government assistance such as SNAP, SSI, AFDC, LIHEAP or public housing or household income to qualify.
Those who would like to volunteer to help should arrive between 7:45-8:15 a.m. to allow for assignments. Groups of six or more must make arrangements online or call Nancy Terwilliger at the ministry’s office at 615-453-5777 at least one week in advance to participate. Additional volunteers are also needed to help with the Thursday morning food giveaways, which are held for the elderly and disabled, the Thursday immediately prior to the last Saturday in each month.
