Food Pantry Story     
     There is a special garden at Cane Creek Farm where a group of volunteers from Cumming First United Methodist Church grow food for those in our community  who need help feeding their families. The Pantry stocks mostly staples and bakery goods, but fresh vegetables are a real treat.  
     While it is necessary for people to pay for their vegetables to support the farm and its activities, we realize there are those who cannot afford to buy the healthy food we all need. This garden is a way for the farm to partner with the church to give back to our community and be a good neighbor.
     Many people make this project possible, from the farmers, to the coordinator, to all the gardeners. Families are welcome to help as there is always something for one to do in a garden. Tuesday at 5:00  is the regular work time, as the distribution of the food is on Wednesday morning. Specific tasks are often done at another time, as people have time.  If anyone would like to help with the work of the garden, the contact is Bill Searcy,
