Bread Of Life
We are a part of the Scottsville Bread of Life Ministry that was formed in 1995 by a group of dedicated volunteers from the local churches in Scottsville. This community ministry works together to bring food and other supplies to those in need. The Bread of Life Ministry distributes food and other essentials to those who request help. Each of the contributing churches (St. Anne’s Episcopal Parish, Scottsville United Methodist, Scottsville Baptist, Scottsville Presbyterian and St. George’s Catholic Church) takes a turn at leading this group effort. If you would like to be part of this ministry, come to the Scottsville Community Center (rear entrance) the third Friday of the month at 1:00pm to help unload the truck, at 2:00 p.m. to help pack up the food, and the third Saturday of the month at 8:00 a.m. to pass out the food.
Mobile Food Pantry
We support the Mobile Food Pantry which is a joint effort of the Blue Ridge Food Bank and the Bread of Life Ministry. The Mobile Food Pantry needs volunteers on the fourth Tuesday of each month meeting at the Scottsville Farmer’s Market Pavilion. Start times are 9:00 a.m. if you are helping with carts and sign-in or 9:30 a.m. if you are helping with food packing and distribution.

Needs Of Others
Through generous donations, Scottsville UMC has a fund that helps to support those individuals requiring assistance in covering their utilities or rent. Individuals receiving this assistance must be vetted by Love, Inc. Once vetted with Love, Inc., we can provide a one-time donation of up to $150, and monies are sent directly to the utility company or landlord. Individuals must wait at least 365 days before we are able to provide additional monetary donations.
