Food Pantry Needs

A list of items needed for our food pantry. These items bless several families in our community.

10.21.2020 Pantry Needs


For those who are able to shop a little extra, please consider dropping off items to help others in our community. If you call the church office (330.863.1303) when you arrive, we can bring out a shopping cart.

NOTE: In the past, we have been unable to keep fresh produce, bread, or milk on hand. At this time, however, since we have room in our freezer, we would like to stock frozen meats that are in 1-2 lb. packages, particularly hamburger, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, or boneless chicken.

>>>Please do not bring anything dented, opened, partially used, expired or very close to expiring.<<<
