GCM lists Fab 5 campaign to stock pantry
Greer Community Ministries (GCM) has launched the 2017 Fab 5 campaign to help stock the food pantry shelves with basic nonperishable food items that frequently run low at the nonprofit organization.

This year’s Fab 5 items are:

• dried beans (16 oz.)

• beef stew

• canned meat (tuna, salmon, chicken)

• spaghetti sauce

• cereal

GCM provides emergency food orders every four months to people in need in the greater Greer area.

“In January alone, we gave out 123 food orders that fed 340 people, which shows you how great the need truly is,” said Maureen Bryan, food and clothing services coordinator. “During winter months, donations are typically slow. We hope that the Fab 5 campaign reminds people that there is a need all year.”

A food order consists of five bags of nonperishable food and is available once every four months. The order should feed a family of three or four people for three to five days. Larger families receive two or three food orders based on the number of people living in the household.

Donations are accepted from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday at the ministry, 738 S. Line St. Ext., Greer. Call 877-1937 or visit gcminc.org for more information.
