Going Bananas

Goind Bananas

Roughly 400 people flow through our food distribution center on a daily basis. As long as the need exists and donations pour in, we will continue meeting part of the grocery needs of our storm ravaged community. Now open Wednesday through Saturday the free store provides assistance to those trying to put their lives back together under very difficult living conditions.

Last week a generous truck load of bananas came in. Unlike canned food, we can’t set perishable food back in our regular canned food stock rotation. Fresh bananas need to move immediately. So not only did each family get a case of bananas, we set a pallet of bananas on the front porch on Sunday to distribute to all congregants. Even the volunteers have been eating bannana bread, bread pudding, and a variety of other banana recipes this week.
