HOW Food Pantry

For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, 'You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.'Deuteronomy 15:11, ESV

We welcome all in need of the Hands Open Wide (HOW) Food Pantry.  We distribute non-perishable food items on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 9:30 am – 10:30 am on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Due to the COVID pandemic, we offer a safe, drive-through food distribution.  Grocery items are bagged and ready to be safely delivered to your vehicle.
