The Community Food Connection of Blount County needs your support at the Fall Festival at 1st.

We have just finished another record setting month of helping neighbors who needed food assistance.

We are helping over 6,000 people in Blount County monthly, including 1200 to 1600 children.

We provide 160 bags monthly for delivery by Meals on Wheels to seniors who can’t get to us.

1st UMC Maryville has always been supportive of this mission and this is a call for help.

Our food costs average $10,000 each month, a lofty goal to raise. We will be collecting food staples at the Fall Festival, look for our banner on the porte-cochere side parking lot (left side when looking toward the front of the church). 

Items needed: 

  • cereal
  • canned pasta meals
  • canned fruit,  
  • peanut butter
  • any canned vegetable. 

If you can make a financial contribution we can stretch dollars with our tax free purchases through Second Harvest and local stores.  These donations can be done through our church office and noted for the CFC, or given to us directly at the Festival.

Thank you for your support,
