Ascension Food Pantry

Food Pantry hours and procedures

Beginning April 2018, our food pantry is closed for reorganization.  Please call us the end of August 2018 for our status.

 

food-pantry-bagAscension’s Food Pantry has been a Jubilee Ministry of the Episcopal Church since February 2005. Many volunteers commit time, talent, and treasure to our Food Pantry ministry.  There are folks who always work behind the scenes ordering food, shopping in stores or at the Food Bank, restocking shelves, or putting the bags together for clients. Several times a year, Cub Scout Pack 28 that our church sponsors solicits food from the neighborhood. Local students also put in time to get their community service hours.
Food-Pantry-parking-lotEach Thanksgiving we distribute turkey dinner “baskets” to about 130 families. We are always looking for volunteers to work in all aspects of our Food Pantry ministry.
If you are interested, please get in touch with our Outreach Commission chair, our Food Pantry chair, or the office.
