MUST Ministries Raises $175,000 for Neighborhood Mobile Pantry Bus

As a result of donor generosity on Giving Tuesday, MUST Ministries raised the money necessary to purchase and retrofit a bus that will become an innovative Neighborhood Mobile Pantry. The mobile bus will take fresh fruits and vegetables, frozen meats, breads, canned goods, and dairy products (when available) to people living in “food deserts” in Cherokee and other surrounding counties where groceries are not within walking distance.

In addition to many individual gifts dedicated to this important cause, organizations committed a total of $80,000 for purchasing and converting the bus. Beacon Foundation, Griffco Design Build, and Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church made significant donations during Georgia Gives Day.

“On behalf of thousands of our clients who suffer from food instability, MUST is grateful to these donors who support MUST Ministries and fulfill MUST’s mission of serving our neighbors in need,” said Dr. Ike Reighard, president and CEO of MUST Ministries.

The pantry should be operational by March, according to MUST officials. The organization is still in need of funds to cover operating costs, which include a driver, permits, gas, maintenance, and other essential expenses. To donate, please visit
