Church Food Pantries

A number of churches in our association have food pantries for those in their neighborhoods who are in need of food.

Churches and individuals are encouraged to share the Bread of Life by supporting these pantries with food donations. Gather donated foods and deliver them to the pantry nearest you. If you have questions on specific needs, please contact the pantry of your choice. Thank you for caring and sharing Jesus in word and action!
