We weren’t sure what to expect. So we did the best we could with all the people who came. We practiced social distancing as best we could. We packed at the church and then delivered the groceries in prepared boxes.
The families who came already knew what to do. We almost did not have to organize anything. They drove up in cars and we got to load their vehicles with goodies.
Under the circumstances, we were wondering if we would be able to have the pantry at all. After all, we had canceled the previous one. All expectations were exceeded.
We thought it would be chaotic. It was one of the most organized pantries we have ever had. We thought distancing would be an issue. The families stayed in their cars and so that guideline was no problem. We were concerned someone might get sick. It turns out that it’s good for us to be outside.
We thought we would not have many people come to receive the food. We had twice the number of families we usually get to serve. It was a truly blessed and needed breath of fresh air in the middle of this pandemic we are all enduring. Praise God!
