  • Description: Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry ("Outreach") is nestled within the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina in the town of Columbus, just east of Tryon, NC. Outreach serves Polk County families and individuals that need assistance with day-to-day necessities such as food, heat and housing. The Food Pantry is a year-round program that provides a "shopping experience" for our clients that are in a food crisis situation. Each month, hundreds of families and individuals in need come to Outreach for food and commodities. In addition, the Food Pantry Program supports the Feed-A-Kid Program by providing food bags that are then distributed to children identified as being nutritionally at-risk. None of this would be possible without the generosity of churches, foundations, friends, partners, donors and the community who give of their time and resources by serving as volunteers within the Food Pantry, donating needed food items and commodities.
