Faith Food Partners

The Pastor’s Pantry Faith Food Partners program is an easy and convenient option for any group or organization that would like to “faith-fully” collect and donate a specific food item each month.

Here’s how the program works: A specific food item is collected throughout the month, then it is delivered to the Pantry (or we can pick it up) at the end of each month. WE provide a schedule showing which item is to be collected each month and this schedule is displayed on the collection boxes. If you need collection boxes, we are happy to provide those, too. YOU promote awareness of the Faith Food Partners program and find a visible home for the collection boxes.

This program helps keep our shelves stocked with food staples that are always desperately needed and appreciated by the clients we serve. We happily accept donations of any size – no quantity is too small!

Our 2014 Faith Food Partners are: Mt. Tabor United Church of Christ, Maple Grove Church of the Brethren, Beulah United Church of Christ, Grace Episcopal Church, Memorial United Church of Christ (Women’s Guild), New Life Baptist Church, Delta Sigma Theta and First Lutheran Church.

Currently, Pastor’s Pantry serves over 600 families throughout the county each month, and the need for our services is growing. If we were able to collect at least 600 of one specific item in a given month, it would mean that we could provide one of those items for almost all of the families we serve that month — that’s a big deal to us and to those who are hungry!

Please consider partnering with us! Our Faith Food Partners program represents a tangible way for any group, organization, business or individual to directly help needy families in our local communities. If you would like to discuss this local outreach opportunity or if you’d like for us to provide you with a monthly food collection schedule, we would love to speak with you!
