The Ecumenical Food Pantry gives a big thank you shout out to our local USPS letter carriers for their annual Second Saturday in May Blue Bag food drive. USPS letter carriers collected 13,204 pounds of food on the second Saturday of May. The poundage was divided between Ecumenical Food Pantry, Salvation Army, Welcome Pantry and St. Theo’s Loaves and Fishes. The Ecumenical Food Pantry received 4,107 pounds.

Ecumenical Food Pantry is deeply appreciative of these local food drive contributions. The contributions help fill the gap to serve the grocery needs of our city and county populations.
A gracious thank you to local churches, service clubs, businesses, community donors and our food pantry volunteers to aid in canceling food insecurity.

The Ecumenical Food Pantry is open Tuesdays and Fridays from 9 to 11:45 a.m. to individuals and families needing food and personal items. The pantry is a nondiscriminating food pantry, providing a safe and respectful space to service our population’s needs.
