The Grenada Food Pantry’s monthly Distribution Day is this Saturday, June 26, and directors are welcoming all volunteers.
Kim McRee, one of the directors at the food pantry, said volunteers are needed for this Thursday’s bagging day and Saturday’s day for distribution.
According to McRee, Saturday’s Distribution Day will be held from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. She added that volunteer opportunities to help are Thursday (June 24) from 9 a.m. until noon for bagging groceries and again on Saturday from 7 a.m. until 10 a.m.
“We’ve been seeing the number of volunteers down a little, so all volunteers are welcome these days,” McRee said. “On Saturday, we’re asking the volunteers to be at the Food Pantry at 7 a.m., if possible.”
According to McRee, handicap recipients will drive around to the back of the Grenada Police Department and City Auditorium to receive their groceries. She said non-handicap recipients are asked to park on the Main Street side and walk into the facility.
