Last Wednesday we took our Wheels of Sharing Mobile Food Pantry to a new location – Bartlett, TX. Bartlett is a small, rural community of 1,600 located on the Williamson and Bell County lines. Many residents are in need of emergency food assistance, and their only grocery store doesn’t accept Food Stamps or WIC vouchers. 

backs2With the help of many wonderful volunteers from City Hall and Vessels of God Church, 129 families received frozen meats, bread, vegetables, rice, beans, spaghetti, spaghetti sauce and more.

Everyone was so grateful for what they received, and many said they look forward to future distributions. Wheels of Sharing will visit Bartlett the second Thursday of each month. bartlett-mom-and-son-release1

    Glenda,

    I did your story for the local paper. Just wanted you to know that you caused quite a stir among that constituency that can use your help! We’re looking forward to seeing you here again, and if there’s any way the paper can assist, or me, just let me know.
