On Saturday, April 25th from noon until 2 PM, the Stillmeadow Community Fellowship, will offer a drive-through food pantry for community residents in need of food. To support this effort donations of non-perishable foodstuffs and monetary contributions will be greatly appreciated. While the church is coordinating with Maryland Food Bank, Pastor Michael Martin says, “Donations to the food bank have dropped while the need has grown exponentially. All contributions are appreciated to help people make it through this crisis and feed themselves and their families”.

Volunteers are also needed to help with distribution and are asked to come with their own facemasks and gloves to ensure their safety. Says Pastor Michael, “We didn’t anticipate the necessity of these items, so we just don’t have enough on hand. On April 9th we distributed food to 220 families. The National Guard will be on hand to help with logistics and we have the support of many organizations including, the Irvington Neighborhood Association, other neighborhood associations and the Broken Wall Project. But more help is always appreciated”.

They are planning an additional food distribution on Thursday, May 6th as well.
