Food Pantry

In the United States, it is difficult to acknowledge that there are individuals and families who are hungry. Our food pantry provides nationally balanced bags of groceries to members of our community who are struggling with this most basic need. The food pantry operates Monday through Friday from 1:00pm –4:00pm.
