Cornerstone Food Pantry brings magic to our community

It was another unbelievable Saturday morning at Cornerstone Church. Lots of people travel 240 miles to Orlando and pay $100 a person to feel the magic at Disney Land.  I guarantee there was magic abounding at the food pantry today – and it’s close – and free!

Thanks to those who carefully put meat or pastries in plastic bags, poured a tired woman a cup of coffee, filled bags to overflowing, chatted with a client as they carried her bags to a car parked way out on the grass, consoled at the prayer table, helped a man pick out some clothes for his daughter, rushed to get more bags ready for the next in line, registered a deaf man who turned 52 today, got the news from a returning client, etc etc.  There was magic in the air.

Below are the statistics from our Jan. 9 distribution:

Farm Share $5816 worth of food
Aldi’s $500 meat, etc
Publix 450 bread & bakery items
Clothing Many individuals
Clients and Volunteers
346!! People picked up a bag of food
1034 Individuals benefited from the bag of food
52 New clients
91 Volunteers participated in distribution activities; including AGAIN Boy Scout Troop 314       and missionaries from the Church of Latter Day Saints!

And we were able to share food with the Silver Palm UMC food pantry.  Pastor Diane came to pick up 4 different items to distribute at their pantry.
