Crop Hunger Walk 2015
A big thanks to the 24 churches and 157 walkers that participated in the Crop Hunger Walk on October 4. The day of the walk brought in $7,786 with up to potentially $12,000 raised to fight hunger in Johnson County and around the world. Our box truck was filled with pallet boxes full of food and paper products. Thanks to all!
Chili Cook-Off 2015
The 6th annual Chili Cook-Off was held Sunday, October 11, 2015, at Mt. Auburn United Methodist Church, Greenwood. All proceeds from this event will be used to operate the Pantry in order to address hunger in Johnson County.
Various restaurants provided chili for guests to sample and then voted on their favorite one. A silent auction provided opportunities for guests’ bidding pleasure along with enjoyable music.
