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.
Food Pantry Hours
Our food pantry is open. Due to COVID-19, our process is a little different (see procedure below). You may visit the food pantry every other week.
DAY & TIME:
Saturdays only, 9:00-11:00 a.m.
Drive through the West side portico closest to FM 1626. Stay in your car-your food will be brought to your car.
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. Click here for a printable food pantry shopping list. There is also a physical list that you may take outside of the East side double doors. On Saturdays, bring your donations to the Choir room door on the East side of the building (the door in between the main double doors and the Fellowship Hall doors).
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. We need individually wrapped snacks such as: granola bars, cookies, crackers, nuts, gummie bears, etc. for those students who need to attend in person school in order to learn. We will also provide these students with non-perishable lunches. 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.
