Any soups, vegetables, pasta, tuna, beans and mac and cheese are always welcome. Toilet paper, soaps and paper towels are needed also.   Help our food pantry through the summer.   You can leave your items in the baskets outside the church office.   Please, no expired items.   Thank you for your support of this longstanding ministry !
