Food Pantry Needs

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

06.04.2020 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.

Understandably, the demand is high at this time. Everything you consider a basic necessity in your own home is what we try to stock in our food pantry. (See the reference list below.) The quickest items to go are quick meals (hamburger helper type or complete meals in a box), canned meat, pasta, boxed potatoes, rice, oatmeal packets, cereal, pop tarts, breakfast/granola bars, canned fruit, ramen noodles, soups, mac-n-cheese, toilet paper, laundry detergent, bar soap, shampoo/conditioner).

NOTE: We are 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.<<<
