Food Pantry hours and procedures
• Our food pantry is closed for reorganization. We will reopen January 8, 2019. Our days and hours will be Tuesday and Thursday, 10:00 to 11:30.
Ascension’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.
Each Thanksgiving we distribute turkey dinner “baskets” to about 50 families.
If you are interested in making a donation, please make out your payment to Ascension and designate “food pantry” in the memo.
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 Food Pantry chair or the office.
