Can we all agree God works in some pretty amazing ways?
We first heard about the Five N Two Food Pantry last week at an outreach meeting for the summer feeding program where we met Austin, the director of Five N Two. He was telling us about the food pantry and Jackie and I both agreed we had to see this place.
Five N Two Food Pantry is located off Hwy 87 and Hwy 27. They process and distribute about 28,000 lbs of food every month! Can you believe that? They have a truck that picks up food every day from local grocers! They serve over 4,000 people a month! What was intriguing to me was the fact that Five N Two is a free-choice food pantry. I had no idea what that meant. Check out these pictures:
The fridges have the frozen meat, marked out by family size 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-10
Fresh fruits and veggies – mix and match
Fridges for storing cold items
Today’s free choice! What a great concept!
Basically families come in a get to pick food based on family size. Canned goods, fresh vegetables, fruits, bread, free choice. The food pantry serves any Harnett County resident in need, all you need is a proof of address and a valid photo ID.
Also add to the awesomeness, Five N Two also has a grill and food pantry down the road that helps to support their mission. Amazing food, the chef was awesome and the thrift store was super cute. Go check it out!
