Redistributing fresh food to needy families in the Mid-South

Commonly referred to as the Gleaning Ministry, Resource Redistribution Ministry (RRM) extends God’s love to the food-challenged population in the Mid-South area by redistributing fruits, vegetables and other perishable foods donated by area grocers to Collierville United Methodist Church, an agency of the Mid-South Food Bank.

Without this redistribution channel, this edible food would be destroyed.

With help from over 50 dedicated volunteers, RRM makes daily pick-ups (7 days a week, 365 days a year including Christmas Day in some cases) at area grocery retailers like Costco, Trader Joe’s, Sprouts, Fresh Market, and Kroger.

RRM immediately redistributes the food through churches, food pantries, and senior living communities like Wesley Living, Plough Towers and City View Towers with a total of over 3,000 residents. These communities have no central kitchens, so individuals are left to provide entirely for themselves. It is estimated that in total, RRM serves about 25,000 people weekly.

Some prepared foods, like cooked pizzas and fried chicken, are regularly delivered to area first responders. And fresh flower bouquets are delivered several days a week to senior living communities.
