The Ark Community and Resource Center held their annual mobile food pantry at Harpeth Middle School (HMS) last Saturday, providing food to over a dozen families across the state.
The nonprofit, led in part by Director Mike Turpin, has been holding the mobile food pantry for a few years at different locations.
The mobile food pantry is an extension of The Ark's pantry that is available for Kingston Springs and Pegram families year-round. Turpin said the organization holds the mobile food pantry two to three times a year, and is for anyone and everyone – it is not restricted to those in South Cheatham County.
The community center was established in the 2000s, and is dedicated to helping the community whenever and however they can. Those in need are encouraged to visit The Ark, and their events like the mobile food pantry.
The event is not limited to any person or demographic; all people are encouraged to take advantage of the mobile food pantry for themselves and their families.
The Ark has been aiding the community for almost 20 years, doing whatever they can to reach out and help those in South Cheatham County.
The mobile food pantry is one creative and accessible way for the citizens in the area to be supported, and The Ark plans to continue hosting the event in the future.
