Food Bank to visit Murfreesboro


    MURFREESBORO—Harvest Regional Food Bank is returning to Pike County with its Mobile Pantry. “We have several communities in our rural service area that are not fully served by local partner agencies. To be sure that the residents in these areas are served, we are providing direct service where needed,” said Camille Coker Wrinkle, Executive Director of Harvest Regional Food Bank.
    Harvest Regional Food Bank will distribute pantry boxes and USDA commodities from the Community Room in the Murfreesboro Municipal Building at 204 East Main on Wednesday, February 10 from 10 a.m.-noon. With a new schedule, seniors age 65 and older will be served first, starting at 10 a.m. followed by 65 and younger.
    Volunteers are needed to help load boxes into cars. If you can volunteer, please call Harvest Regional Food Bank at 870-774-1398.
    Recipients must bring photo identification verifying their age and residence in Pike County. Distribution is limited to one per household and cannot be picked up for others. USDA commodities will be available for those who meet income requirements and do not receive commodities at another location. Full income guidelines can be found on our website, under Programs/TEFAP. Please note, the day of mobile pantry will be on a Wednesday.
    Food boxes will include an assortment of canned fruits and vegetables, rice, pasta, fruit juices, spices and other items.
