Correction - March 1, 2024

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 2/29/24 | 2/29/24

In the February 23 edition of the Mountain Eagle it was incorrectly reported that the Davenport United Methodist Church volunteer to handle the day-to-day operations of the Davenport Food Pantry. The West Davenport Free Baptist Church has been operating the pantry for the past nine years on a volunteer basis. The congregation has secured a bank account for the pantry where donations are used to supplement what food is received from Delaware County. Supplemented food includes items such as milk, bread, and hamburger, said Pastor Steve Estes. During Thanksgiving of 2023, the congregation spent roughly $2,000 on turkeys for over 80 families. Each month the congregation develops a menu for households to choose items from that suit their family needs. The pantry is open monthly on the third Friday from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. and again on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. The pantry is sometimes open for longer hours during holidays including Christmas and Thanksgiving. For more information or emergency food delivery, individuals can call Pantry Administrator Kevin Smith at 607-432-5387. "We have been delighted to do this," said Pastor Estes.
