Central Texas Food Bank Mobile Food Pantry – Every Second Monday 9:00 a.m. – Parking Lot of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, 1711 E. Oltorf
Five student volunteers (and some of their moms!) came to staff the food line on Monday, March 12. They represented Vista Ridge and Westwood high schools, Gorzycki Middle School, and Cowan Elementary School. What a great way for them to start off their week of Spring Break. They helped to serve sixty-three family units that came out for food that morning in Southeast Austin – an economically impoverished area of Austin.
The food bank’s truck comes to the Prince of Peace parking lot every second Monday morning of the month. We need volunteers to work the food line, the parking lot, and the sign-in process. Set-up starts at 8:00 a.m. and the line serves food from 9:00-10:00 a.m. The food bank tells us that the Prince of Peace zip code – 78741 – is underserved with only a handful of food pantries.
To volunteer for either effort, contact Pastor Tim Anderson. Thanks!!
