Ada Jenkins adds food pantry hours, tax preparation assistance

Feb. 8. Due to increased demand, the Ada Jenkins Center is expanding the operating hours of the Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry. It’s now open every Wednesday and Thursday from 12:30-2:30pm, as well as the second Saturday of each month.

To access the Food Pantry, families must call Loaves and Fishes in advance at 704-523-4333.

“We’ve seen an increase in demand across all of Ada Jenkins Center’s services, so we knew without doubt that we would have to expand our Food Pantry hours,” said Harold Rice, CEO of the Ada Jenkins Center.

Tax help

AJC has opened registration for free tax preparation, as well.

Through April 15 at locations in Davidson and Huntersville, volunteer tax preparers will help neighbors with incomes of $60,000 or less prepare their taxes for free–a savings of about $250 per family.

In 2022 Ada Jenkins Center’s VITA program served 173 households, saving them a total of $43,250 in tax preparation fees.

Appointments must be made in advance via the Ada Jenkins Center website: www.adajenkins.org.
