M.A.C. was organized with a board of directors from several donor churches and Albright UMC serves as host to the pantry. We serve families from the Mishawaka, Granger and Osceola areas. (We do serve people from other areas one time and give them information on pantries in their areas.)
Pantry donors come from local churches, individuals, and several businesses – for example Martin’s donates bread supplies three times a week. Volunteers show up Tuesday morning to record donations , weigh them , check all the food for expiration dates, and set up the carts ready for the evening clients. Every Tuesday evening and Friday morning, volunteers show up faithfully week after week, year after year to welcome families in need and give out carts of food. Everyone is offered a treat and on Friday, those who wish may listen to a short devotional by a volunteer, however, this is not required to receive food. Several times a month our “muscle “ men, pick up large orders of food from the Food Bank and deliver it to the food pantry.
In 2017 Sheila Swineheart became the pantry’s new director. She works many hours to see that food is ordered, the pantry clean, volunteers updated on changes and the pantry compliant with old and new regulations. She is knowledgeable, organized, hardworking and compassionate. We are blessed to have her.
