PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - East Kentucky Dream Center officials asked the public for help with collecting food donations in its bagged food ministry, as the food pantry in the Pikeville mission runs low.

Pikeville’s FaithLife Market is planning to host a food drive to collect non-perishable food items to the center.

Officials with the market said they hope to see a lot of donations come in so they can turn around and put the food back into the community, since the Dream Center gives out grocery bags to those in need.

“Here at FaithLife Market, we are a non-profit organization and we’re Christian-based. With that, we love to be able to help people that need things,” said Tiana Hinkle, a barista at FaithLife Market. “So, this way, we are also able to help another branch in our community that helps people like that.”

You can drop off donations at the coffee shop area of the market Tuesday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Dream Center is accepting donations Tuesday through Friday, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
