One church in Warrick County works to provide essential supplies for those in need during the coronavirus pandemic.
Like many organizations, Newburgh United Methodist Church has to adjust the way they do things, now offering goods using only drive-thru.
“It’s hard for me to sleep at night thinking someone is hungry when we get a place full of food,” said Craig Duke, Father of Newburgh United Methodist Church.
This is not the first time this food pantry has had to go up during hard times. From cans to toilet paper, Newburgh United Methodist Church has donated household items to those in need for years.
“Last time there was a downturn in the economy, we found that there was a 40% surge in the use of food kitchens, and we anticipate this happening again, unfortunately,” said Paul Stoops, a member of the Newburgh United Methodist Church.
The church also handles food safely – using gloves and masks to package orders before sending them to vehicles.
Newburgh United Methodist Food Pantry is open every Monday from 9:00 to 11:00 and provides food (including fresh meat and fruit and vegetables, if available). Donations can also be sent at the same time on Tuesday.
The Newburgh United Methodist Church is located at 4178 IN-261 in Newburgh, Indiana.
