Through the generous support of Trinity United Methodist Church in Dysartsville, who provides the use of the kitchen facilities, office equipment, and other utilities, the Dysartsville Christian Ministries Food Pantry opened in 2009 as an emergency food assistance program serving an average of 30 familes/week. Now, in 2014, the pantry serves an average of 100 families/week. The need for food assistance in McDowell County is still evident with attendance at local pantries and soup kitchens on the rise. With much needed and appreciated food assistance from Manna Food Bank and Walmart, and with financial support from Carson's Chapel, Dysartsville Baptist, Macedonia Baptist, and Sunny Grove Baptist churches, our pantry packs and distributes boxes of food to local families in need. This is only possible with the help of all the volunteers who tirelessly show up each week to pickup, unload, pack and distribute the tons of food given away to qualifying McDowell County residents. DCM Food Pantry Mission statement: Our pantry mission is to provide emergency food assistance to low income families in the local community during time of need, by distributing both donated and purchased supplemental food. Our goal is to have a reliable supply of food made possible by actively seeking financial support from community and private donations, and corporate and government grants. Our pantry volunteers' work ethic promotes a spirit of cooperation with client families in a respectful and non-judgmental manner, keeping confidentiality a priority.
