Polk City United Methodist Youth Group’s “Fill the Truck” event for DMARC Food Pantry Network

October 16 is World Food Day, a day to promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure healthy diets for all.

It’s a tradition for the youth at Polk City United Methodist Church to go trick or treating for the DMARC Food Pantry Network in October. So this year, they will be trick or treating in Polk City on Oct. 16th from 7pm to 8pm. In addition, DMARC will be bringing their truck to the church fill that night. DMARC Food Pantry Network assists 18,500 people every month through its Network of 14 partner food pantries and 28 Mobile Food Pantry locations. They are committed to providing healthy food options and fresh fruits and vegetables.

Our GOAL is to collect 5,000 items (or cash equivalent). Here’s how you can help:

Make monetary donations to our Virtual Food Drive online at: : https://www.dmarcunited.org/donate/virtual-drive/pcumc/
(DMARC is able to buy two to six times more food per dollar than a consumer can buy at a grocery store with the same amount of money.)

Donate healthy canned goods and other non-perishables by 7:00pm on Wednesday, Oct. 16 to these Polk City locations:
-Polk City United Methodist Church
-Papa’s Pizzeria
-Polk City Public Library

Most needed items include peanut butter, healthy cereals and canned fruit (in its own juice).

The church’s youth group will also be collecting items and monetary donations door to door in the following neighborhoods on Wednesday, Oct. 16 from
7:00 – 8:00pm:
Lost Lake, Marina Cove, Deer Haven, Wolf Creek, TCI, Maplewood, Arrow Ridge and Prairie Ridge.

For more information, contact Melody Webb, pastor, at melody.m.webb@live.com.
