Do You Need Help With Food?
Our food pantry provides a pre-sacked bag of food for people who need help. Each bag provides at least 3 family-size meals. Also, we provide fresh bread, diapers, wipes, paper towels, toilet paper, toiletries, etc.
We distribute food every Saturday from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. Look for the food pantry banners along 1626 on the church property. The drive-through is on the West side of the church (enter from Lowden Lane) at the portico closest to FM 1626. Stay in your car--your food will be brought to your car. You may visit the drive-through every other week.
Supporting the Food Pantry
1. We will be collecting donated food at the church on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:00-11:00 a.m. On Wednesdays, drop food off outside of the Church's East side double doors in the collection container. You will also find shopping lists here that you may take with you to help you shop, or you can click here for a printable food pantry shopping list. On Saturdays, bring your donations to West side of the building (where the drive-through Pantry is taking place).
2. Send monetary donations or H-E-B gift cards to the church at Manchaca UMC, PO Box 460, Manchaca, TX 78652. Be sure to write "food pantry" on the memo line of your check. These funds will help us buy items that we need. You may also donate through our online giving portal by selecting "food pantry" as the fund.
3. Donate food or funds to help Akins students that are experiencing homelessness. MUMC helps to supply the students with individually wrapped snacks such as: granola bars, trail mix, cereal bars, popcorn, cookies, crackers, nuts, chips, Takis, fruit snacks pop tarts, etc. We will also provide these students with non-perishable lunches. Please make sure that provided items are easy open and do not need refrigeration. Along with the food, bottled water is needed, as the water fountains remain shut off at the school due to Covid. We are also assembling bags of travel size toiletries such as: hand sanitizer, shampoo, conditioner, bar soap, lotion, toothpaste, etc. We plan on providing the students with all of these items throughout the school year. Please mark your donations clearly as "Akins" and drop off during the Food Pantry collection times listed in #1, above. Read the Akins Spring Update!
