Carlyle First UMC fed more than 200 Clinton County families on Monday, May 16, with a food fair. Once a month, the church receives shipment of food from the St. Louis Food Bank for distribution to those in need in Clinton County. Matthew 25, a ministry group within the church receives the shipment , unloads it and organizes it for distribution. The May 16 distribution had more than 150 cars come through the distribution line where it was loaded into the vehicles. The food fair is in addition to the monthly distribution on the first Wednesday of the first full week of each month that emanates from the church basement. David Huene heads the church’s ministry with an average of 17 volunteers.
