As recipients of a very generous grant of $2,000 from Vinton Community Foundation, Wesley United Methodist Food Pantry would like to thank you.
This money has been very helpful as we strive to help food insecure people in our community during this very stressful time.
We want to remind everyone that we are distributing food to cars that drive up and park in front of the Church next to the Library. We are there the 3rd Saturday of each month from 10-11. We only ask for your name , address and number in your household.
