The Zebulon United Methodist Church (ZUMC) is pleased to announce that effective March 28, 2016 the church food pantry is partnering with the Food Bank of North Carolina.

The mission statement of the Food Bank of North Carolina is “No One Goes Hungry.” The people at the ZUMC Food Pantry strongly support this statement. The church food pantry currently feeds about 200 people a month. Partnering with the Food Bank allows ZUMC the opportunity to further expand their client base.

The ZUMC Food Pantry is located at 114 W Sycamore Street, in Zebulon NC. The daytime hours of operation are remaining the same: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9-10:30am.  Beginning May 2016, the pantry will add evening hours on the third Wednesday of each month: 5-6:30pm.

The Food Pantry is open to all people in Zebulon and surrounding communities, without regard to race, gender, or religion. There is no requirement that people using the ZUMC Food Pantry belong to the Zebulon United Methodist Church.

The ZUMC Food Pantry does require that food pantry clients provide some form of identification (ID) showing a current NC address. This ID may be a driver’s license, or a utility bill mailed to their home address, or a referral from social services.

For additional questions, contact Mike Powers, The ZUMC Food Pantry Coordinator, at 919.269.8972, or the church office at 919.269.9408.
