ICM TO OPEN BUT NEW PROCEDURES DURING COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS)

In an effort to keep our volunteers, employees, and clients safe from the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we will be asking clients to sign in at the door, then wait in their cars. Employees and volunteers will prepare boxes of food and bring them to the door for pick-up. ICM will be following this procedure until further notice.


ICM has suspended it’s FREE FOOD FRIDAY program until further notice.



HOW YOU CAN HELP         


Many are asking how they can help.  Although, we normally need volunteers, we are limiting the number of people in our building at this time. After this crisis is over, we will be able to use any volunteer hours you could spare.

What we could use is:

MONEY -  ICM will turn your donation into food for our clients. We can purchase food for 19 cents a pound through Second Harvest Food Bank of NC, so every dollar you donate will put 5 pounds of food into distribution for your Iredell neighbors who are struggling with food insecurity.  All monetary donations are tax exempt.

FOOD - Any boxed, canned, bagged food or hygiene items can be delivered to our door. It will be greatly appreciated and distributed quickly.

PRAYER -  We, at ICM, believe in the power of prayer.  Please pray for our pantry, staff, volunteers, and clients.  Please pray for our country and world leaders to recognize and appreciate the value of all individuals as children of God.  Please pray for each other.  

We’re all in this together, and together we’ll become a stronger more unified nation.

Stay safe and well out there!

Food that we still have on Friday that we feel will not last until Monday is available to anyone that wishes to shop.  These items are still good but need to be used over the weekend.
Have you seen the faces of  hunger?  Of course you have.  These are the people we are trying our best to help.

To continue doing so however, we need your help with:  FOOD, MONEY and VOLUNTEERS

   * FOOD can be delivered to ICM Mon-Fri during the hours listed.  

   * VOLUNTEERS are needed  Mon-Thurs for a day, every day or a few hours.  Give us a call or come by and let us give you the details.
