Food Drive-Thru

Posted by Tim Wheat

On Saturday, May 9, we're holding a food drive-thru in partnership with Christian Service Mission.

Church, you've done such a phenomenal job finding ways to live sent during COVID-19, but this is an opportunity for the everyone. And you'll get to see our staff team! We'll have familiar faces at each drop-off location waving to you and unloading your groceries.

The team at CSM is running low on food to distribute to the needy, so we're encouraging every family to go to the store and purchase groceries (canned and boxed grocery items are acceptable). They've met food needs for approximately 5,000 people to date during the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to honor and support their efforts in loving our city!

There's no limit to the amount each person can bring, so let's join together to support this wonderful ministry!


  • Any canned or boxed food that is non-perishable … baby food, children, adults is accepted. Specific items are: canned beans, canned vegetables, canned salmon, tuna, chicken, canned soups, chili’s, stews, fruits, canned ravioli, spaghetti, rice, oatmeal, grits, peanut butter, jelly, cereal bars, pop tarts, protein bars, snack items, coffee, and tea. However, any food will be accepted as long as it is contained and sealed. Items in jars are least preferred because of potential breakage.
  • Please have items boxed or sacked in a trunk or tailgate for easy unload.
  • You can drop off your items from 10 a.m. to noon on May 9th at the two following locations at Shades!

Two locations to receive food:
