OUR FOOD PANTRY

For those who are able to shop a little extra, please consider dropping off items to help others in our community. You have already helped so many local families with your generous donations of food items since we first opened our pantry! 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 are able to accept donations of frozen meats that are in 1-3 lb. packages, particularly ground beef, hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken, chicken nuggets, and pork chops.


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


Currently, our pantry is well-stocked, and we have no critical needs. The following items are lowest in stock. Thank you so much for continuing to support our food pantry.


  • granola bars & other breakfast bars (low stock)
  • Pop Tarts (boxes of 6 or 12)
