Free grocery shopping available this weekend through Radical Mission

Radical Mission is hosting a free grocery shopping experience this weekend during which families and individuals are invited to come by and gather goods to fill their pantry.

On Saturday, April 23, the nonprofit will offer a variety of non-perishables, some refrigerated items, fresh produce, and personal hygiene items, all free. The items available are limited only by what’s there that day, and they will vary per item.

Only food will be available on the event day, but Radical Mission also offers a clothing closet at the same location on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.

Everyone is invited to “shop,” and no proof of income or residency is required.

Also, volunteers will be available for anyone interested in praying or seeking spiritual counsel.

About Radical Mission

Radical Mission works to build community relationships and help provide food, clothing and connection to neighbors in need.

Their food pantry is supplied through community donations, local grocery and restaurant donations, and the Second Harvest Food Bank. Last year, they helped over 2,500 households. Over 5,200 were adults and over 3,100 were children.

Their clothing closet is supplied by community donations, and is offered to individuals and families to ease strains on clothing budgets. Last year, the clothing closet served over 2,200 households.

Radical Mission also supports F.U.E.L., a program that places food directly in the backpacks of children every Friday afternoon. They are partnered with Kenwood Elementary and Richview Middle.

The Jubilee Garden is another ministry with Radical Mission, offering opportunities to learn about growing and harvesting, as well as providing fresh produce to individuals and families.

In addition to these on-site ministries, Radical Mission has community outreach ministries such as Warm Souls Christmas and Summit Height Monthly Fellowship. Warm Souls Christmas is an annual Christmas Eve celebration held at Austin Peay State University providing a home-cooked meal, gifts, family photos and time of fellowship. The Summit Heights Monthly Fellowship is a partnership with the Clarksville Housing Authority, and it provides fellowship and relationship building while sharing a meal.
