Serving as a FISH Volunteer

Located directly across the street from Pease Furniture Company and the area landmark, King Tut's Grill, the FISH South Knoxville Food Pantry in the Vestal United Methodist Church has been providing food to people who are low on food and low on money to buy food in South Knox County for about 20 years.

A wide diversity of people work at the pantry two days a week. Volunteers come from several churches, and many of our guests volunteer to help as well.

In addition to the food provided through the FISH Hospitality Pantries program, one large area grocery store donates food once a week, enabling our guests to have more choices. In the past, volunteers bagged up food with each person getting the same items. Now our guest make choices for themselves. This process allows for more options and helps better meet individual needs.

The FISH program is an important service to many in South Knoxville. Close to 500 families are helped each week. Our volunteers and guests have established friendships with one another, and we are happy to be an integral part of the community.

Serving as a volunteer at the South Knoxville Hospitality Pantry provides a benefit to me as well as those who are receiving food. Volunteering at the pantry has shown me that those in need of assistance are real people---not just statistics I sometimes read about in the newspaper. I have formed new relationships with people I didn't know---and deeper relationships with some people whom I have known for years, but sadly without knowing their needful circumstances. Most of all, I more deeply realize the true meaning of Matthew 25:35, "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat."
