Food Bank Ministry
The Food Bank Ministry (Commodities Ministry) began in 2009 at Petrie Memorial. This program is supplied by “Feeding America” and the USDA organizations.
The program is sponsored by Elkton Baptist Church, Fairview Methodist Church, Mt. Gilead Baptist Church, Petrie Memorial Methodist Church, and Pleasant Hill Methodist Church.
Petrie is blessed every month with many volunteers for this ministry through donations and/or service.
The Food Bank Ministry distributes food to 200+ families each month. To apply for this program, a proof of Todd County residence must be presented.
New volunteers are welcome to help at 9:00 a.m. to unload the truck/sort & bag the food and at 1:00 p.m. to distribute the food.
