Food Pantry

The Food Pantry at St. John’s United Methodist Church is deeply committed to offering gifts of nutritious food to our neighbors in a hospitable, loving and dignified manner. There, families are welcome to shop for their own needs through the pantry located in the Fellowship Hall (Peabody entrance) on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays from 10:00-11:30 AM. The amount of food given is based on the size of the household served and is enough to feed the family (or an individual) for five days
