Western Hanover Emergency Action Team

Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

Welcome to WHEAT, where we serve the Western Hanover community.

ATTENTION: The Food Pantry will continue as it always has – the 2nd & 4th Tuesday of every month. However, effective March 24, the food will be distributed curbside only.

FOOD PANTRY YOUTH. With the Food Pantry, we aim to protect the privacy of all clients who come to us for help. In order to maintain this, our policy is that all children under the age of 18 need to remain in the back areas – (pantry, cart loading, or freezer & fridge room). We are truly grateful for and encourage youth participation, but client privacy is something we value. PLEASE – if you are going to bring children volunteers who are under 18 years of age, contact Cathy Williams at phone # 804-752-2339, or Rickie Smith at phone # 804-916-0167. Thank you.
