Caldwell County Christian Ministries Food Pantry

The FUMC "Glad Baggers" prepare grocery sacks at the Food Pantry. This is a hands-on, assembly-line type project and is lots of fun!

We can always use more helping hands for this activity on the Third Monday of each month. We begin about 8:30 am with twenty or so helpers from our church. Join us as we reach out to our local community. More details can be found by clicking here.

Your financial gift is the most efficient and effective way to make a big impact in the lives of our hungry in Caldwell County. Every $1.00 donated allows us to purchase $5.00 worth of Food from the Capital Area Food Bank.

FUMC Lockhart periodically responds to UMCOR requests, called "advances".
