FOOD PANTRY IS NOW OPEN
Formerly our Food Pantry served over 3,000 people in the community, and was staffed by 50-60 volunteers. At Thanksgiving we put dinner with all the fixings on the table for usually about 100 families. Clientele are referred by Social Services and/or by United Way.
Throughout the worst of the pandemic our pantry was forced to close, along with all other activities in the church building. On Tuesday, May 11 we were able to reopen the Food Pantry doors again, for the first time in over a year.
At present, we are open for two hours a week, and have enough volunteers and food items to help 20+ families a week. Keep us in mind when you do your grocery shopping. Suggested items include canned corn, peas, fruit, spaghetti sauce; boxes of instant mashed potatoes, pasta, cereal, macaroni and cheese; packages of beans, rice, ramen noodles; pancake mix and syrup, peanut butter and jelly, canned chicken and tuna, hot dogs and hot dog buns. Monetary donations must be marked Food Pantry.
