JACKSONVILLE, Fla. First Union Methodist Church on East Duval Street in downtown Jacksonville is hosting its first mobile pantry Saturday afternoon in partnership with Feeding Northeast Florida.
Rev. Tiffany McGill, senior pastor of First UMC, said the Church was organized nearly 200 years ago and has a variety of fellowship programs, including Get Well Jax, a program the Church recently began to encourage people to do helping to recover physically, emotionally and spiritually from the Church from trauma caused by the pandemic.
“As our Lord said, ‘Man doesn’t just live on bread,’ so we offer a holistic program that nourishes the mind, body and soul,” said McGill.
She said Church members were thrilled to have the opportunity to serve the ward with Feeding Northeast Florida on Saturday.
The mobile pantry starts at 2 p.m. at 225 East Duval Street.
The pantry is in the church parking lot behind the church with access to Church Street.
