Hermitage UMC’s Food Pantry ministry provides non-perishable food to our neighbors in need. Neighbors may come to the church office during office hours and they will be met by our staff where packages of food are provided as needed. The Food Pantry receives food donations from church members. A few times each year, Hermitage UMC hosts food drives to help stock up the pantry. Volunteers keep it organized and ready for distribution.
How to Help:
- Check our church newsletter or website for items currently needed in the Food Pantry. Place items in the donations baskets in either building. You can assist in checking expiration dates, sorting & organizing donated food in our storage areas (particularly after food drives). Contact Paul Henrie if you are interested.
- Donations can be made to assist the Food Pantry program. Sometimes there are specific items needed that arenâ€™t in stock, so donations would go toward their purchase. Checks should be made payable to Hermitage UMC and specify that your donation is for the Food Pantry program. Deliver it to the church office or place it in the collection basket.
