Help us keep our shelves and refrigerators stocked!

We are excited to announce that we have successfully transitioned to our self-shopping model. So far our clients are enjoying their shopping experience. To meet our increased demand for food we continue to welcome all your donations.
Donations can be dropped off in the Gather Space of the church or at the Food Shelf through door seven, Monday – Thursday, 8:00 am – 4:30 pm, or Fridays, 8:00 am-Noon.

We are always in need of handled brown paper bags.
