The Commodities program at Mound City UMC is designed to help those who need food supplements each month. We are able to take government administered food and on a monthly basis give to those in need. Our volunteer group from the church also makes sure there is a meal for our friends who come for these groceries. They are able to sit down, eat and visit while either waiting to pick up groceries, or after they have already had their food sacked. Many times there is not enough food to hand out, so the church will purchase it at the local grocery with donated money or with the help of grants.
We recently celebrated nine years of working to help those who need a little help through the month with the MCUMC Commodities program and we look forward to many more years of participating in this worthwhile venture.
