The Timpson Food for Thought Pantry and Thrift Store will host a groundbreaking ceremony Friday, Oct. 11 at 9 a.m.

The new facility is located at 700 N. 2nd St. in Timpson across the street from Timpson First Baptist Church. Land for the new facility was donated by First Baptist.

Directors of the new facility say it was made possible by an infrastructure grant from the East Texas Food Bank, a matching donation from Timpson First Baptist WMU, an award from the Shelby County “50 Women Impact” nonprofit, Danny Mounger and the Funeral Directors Life “Helpers of People Program,” Timpson First Baptist church, and several personal donations.

Timpson Food for Thought is a registered nonprofit. Donations to Timpson Food for Thought are tax-deductible. Volunteers are always needed.
