The Pantry’s most needed food items are listed above; however, any nonperishable items are greatly appreciated. Donation bins are located in several places on the main level of the church. Thank you for your continued support that allows us to serve others and share the love of Christ.
The Pantry is driven almost entirely by volunteer leadership! The Pantry’s future ministry depends on continued leadership and generosity from members of the community committed to serving those in need.
Acquiring Food – Thousands of pounds of food goes out of The Pantry’s doors each month, which means that thousands of pounds first have to come in The Pantry’s doors. Be a part of the team that works to ensure that The Pantry’s shelves stay stocked so that the pantries’ of those in need do not remain bare. We need people willing to work with individuals, community organizations, and corporations to increase our food intake.
Work in the Pantry – Every time The Pantry is opened, volunteers are needed to process the newly donated food and meet the families that have come to pick up food. We need people to help check-in donated food, fill take-home boxes and pray with the families that need our assistance. The Pantry is open on Saturday from 9:30am – 11:30am
