There is a gift of food in Lodi each and every month, rain or shine.

On the third Saturday of each month a very large truck pulls into the Ebenezer Congregational Church parking lot. Volunteers pull out cases of food, unpack them and then put the food into grocery bags. Other volunteers help people take the food to their cars. Some volunteers serve coffee and a snack. There are those who play music, serve free hot dogs and buns, or cut hair.

What is the catch? Sign in if you have already registered, or if you haven’t yet, a volunteer will be glad to take your name and address. Sign in once and done.

Volunteers are always needed. I heard we served 300 people last month. Hunger never waits. Please join us Nov. 17. Bring friends.
