feed the hungry

As more families in our area go through financial hardship and extended periods of unemployment, we want to make sure that no one goes hungry. On this page you'll find opportunities to serve our community through donating food or serving meals.

Calvary United Methodist Food Pantry

Greenmonte is a long-time supporter of the food pantry ministry of Calvary United Methodist in Stuarts Draft. Their doors are still open to the community and we would like to help them reach as many families as possible with the gift of needed food and nourishment. There are two ways you can support the pantry:

1) Bring donations of non-perishable food to the food pantry, located at 2179 Stuarts Draft Highway, Stuarts Draft. They are open Mondays and Thursdays from 2-5pm.

2) Volunteer to help distribute food during their operating hours of Mondays and Thursdays from 2-5pm. They are distributing food via drive-through. Contact Mindy at 540-290-8844 if you're interested.

3) Volunteer to pack food boxeon Wednesdays and Sundays. Contact Mindy at 540-290-8844 if you're interested.

Disciples' Kitchen

The Disciples' Kitchen unites area churches to feed daily meals to anyone who needs them. On Sundays they are serving bagged lunches, and are looking for groups who will take one Sunday every two or three months to provide a bagged lunch for up to 40 people. Would you like to join together with your life group, family, or another group to serve the Disciples' Kitchen this way? More details are below.

  • Each lunch includes a sandwich, fruit, vegetable, a snack, and water (maybe with Crystal Light flavoring)
  • With your group, you can buy food and prepare it, or you can choose to just donate monetarily and another church can buy and prepare the food.
  • You can choose to hand out the lunches yourselves at Second Presbyterian in Waynesboro, or someone else can hand them out for you. 
  • To volunteer or to find out more information, please contact Bill Clifton at 540-241-6787, or bclif815@gmail.com.
