Medical clinic teams up with food pantry for community’s benefit

More than 100 residents in Bibb County lined up for food at First Baptist Church of Woodstock on Wednesday.

Cahaba Medical Care and the West Alabama Food Bank partnered to host the event.

Cahaba has three food pantries within the organization and it partners with area nonprofits in locations near its clinics.

On Wednesday, food bags distributed at the Woodstock church included produce, canned goods, meats, frozen items, cereal and juice.

Recipient Stephanie Macon said events like these are a big help for her family.

“It’s a struggle right now because I am not working,” Macon said. “It’s a very big help. I thank the church for everything they do for every family that they are helping it does a lot of good.”

Cahaba’s next food drive is happening in October in West Blocton. They’re also hosting a drive in November in Centreville. Exact locations have not yet been determined.
