Bemidji’s “Ruby’s Pantry” (www.rubyspantry.org) grocery distribution ministry took place this last Wednesday (April 15) at the Sanford Center with new health safety protocols in place during our global pandemic. Like grocery stores, this ministry is considered “essential” by local authorities. Bemidji’s United Way (www.unitedwaybemidji.org/) provided 60 additional staff & students from BSU to replace the retired volunteers who needed to shelter in place & Lakeland News covered the event (https://lptv.org/rubys-pantry-changes-distribution-plan-amidst-covid-19-crisis/). Our Church Ministries team of Rick Weinert & Jim Hodgson are active in this Ruby’s Pantry ministry, as are other OHF staff, local pastors, & some of our students.
