Dayton Churches Restocking Their Food Pantries

Ten Dayton area churches will be receiving supplies to stock their food pantries this week. The help is coming from former U.S. Congressman and U.N. Ambassador from Dayon, Tony Hall, and Convoy of Hope — a faith-based humanitarian organization.

Hall serves as a special advisor to the group and has been working on hunger issues for several decades. He is the current director for The Alliance to End Hunger.

The food supplies will arrive in a semi-trailer at the Christian Life Center on Thursday morning where more than 100 volunteers are expected to help sort and deliver the goods.

Pastor Stan Tharp with the Christian Life Center says the food will be going to inner-city churches in need and will help people coping with the COVID-19 crisis this Easter.
