Nebo distributes it to Pike locations, including Christ Chapel Community Church at 68 Old Zebulon Road starting at 2 p.m. ’This time, Pike will get 4,000 boxes which will be given out to different churches, including an additional 2,700 boxes for churches in the Macon area,’ said pastor Timothy Starks of Mount Nebo Baptist Church in Meansville. ‘We want everyone to know about this so people can receive the provisions that God has made available.’Christ Chapel Community Church in Zebulon will distribute the USDA Farmers to Families food box program again on Thursday, June 18.

Each Farmers to Families Box will include 4 pounds of fruit, 4 pounds of vegetables, 5 pounds of pre- cooked meats, 1 pound of cheese, 1 pound of butter and a half gallon of milk.Each tractor trailer will deliver 24 pallets of food with 56 boxes on each pallet for a total of 1,344 boxes total to be distributed in Pike.For more information, call 770-567-1141.
