The IGRC United Methodist Men, in partnership with the Board of Global Ministries, will hold a potato drop on Friday, September 17, 2021. Food pantries will be able to come and pick up potatoes at the Midwest Food Banks in either their Peoria or Normal locations that morning. Please send Steve Liehr, United Methodist Men Hunger Relief Advocate, an email if your church has a food pantry or has members active in working at a community food pantry. Steve's email is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you include a contact number or email to the food pantry, UMM will call/email the pantry to learn how many potatoes they want. This will help us decide how many potatoes we need at each site and set a specific time for their pick up as times are still to be determined.
Donation of potatoes is being made through the Society of St. Andrew.
