Latter-Day Saints to donate 10 tons of food to Love Chapel

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Columbus will be donating 10 tons of food to Love Chapel this week.

The semi-truck sized donation of 20,000 pounds of food will be arriving Wednesday, according to organizers. Youth and members from the church will be assisting volunteers at Love Chapel to unload the food from the truck.

Bishop Jack Bartnett, with the church, said economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic has only increased the need to follow Jesus’s admonition to help fight food insecurity. He said church members follow Jesus Christ and his message to love our neighbor as ourselves.
