Faith United Methodist lends a hand to needy folks

July 12, 2011
By AMBER ZOLONDEK - Staff Writer , Minot Daily News

After being evacuated and having your house ruined by flooding, it's a little overwhelming not to know where your next meal is coming from.

But Faith United Methodist Church is helping those around Minot who are flood victims, or just in need of food to find some stability in the chaos that has claimed so many people's lives.

"We're going mobile," laughed Ada Lower, a staff member from Faith United's food pantry. After serving those in need for 20 years, Faith United Methodist's food pantry was a place for fellowship, food, and friendship. But, the church itself at 801 W. University Ave. became a little too wet, to say the least, when it fell victim to the flood.

To continue in serving the community, Faith United has uprooted and stationed a makeshift food pantry in Town & Country Center's parking lot with trailers and all. On Mondays and Wednesdays, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., people can stop by and pick up a midday meal and necessary items such as bread, canned goods, and toiletries.
