MPH Students Volunteer at Red Bank Food Pantry

Our first year students, Lindsey Farrell and Savannah Ward volunteered at the Red Bank Food Pantry helping provide meals to 300 families in the Chattanooga community. The Red Bank Food Pantry is housed within the Red Bank United Methodist Church. They host a food drive every first and third Thursday of the month from 4:30-6pm and are always looking for volunteers to help unload the food truck (Tuesdays), pack the bags (Wednesdays) and distribute the food (Thursdays). Masks are worn at all times and hand sanitizer and gloves are easily accessible and available. Those who are interested in volunteering, can sign up using this link that has descriptions of shifts and time slots that they are requesting help.
