Edgerton Memorial United Methodist Church in Selma hosts a food drive each week to help those in need in Johnston County.

Each Thursday, the food pantry gives away food to around 125-150 people. Recipients can receive a box of food every other week.

The food pantry, one of the largest in Johnston County, would not be possible without the help of the 8-10 volunteers who show up every week to put boxes together and hand out food.

To receive food, people must bring proof they live in Johnston County such as a bill or driver’s license.

Contents of the boxes each week vary, but consist of meat, cheese, produce, bread and sometimes a dessert.
