Food Pantry Drop Off

Food Pantry Drop Off

With covid-19 lay-offs, limited work schedules and children at home all day, many families are now food insecure.  They need our help.

Ron and Cindy Brewington Clapp are collecting food, paper products and cleaning products for the food pantry at St John the Apostle Church. Church services are online, so weekly donations are down significantly. Couple that with the tremendous need at this time, and the food pantry goes bare by the end of the week.

Cindy and Ron will keep a bin on their front porch as a collection place.  If you feel so inclined, feel free to drop off your donations to the food pantry. No cash or gift cards, please.  The pantry needs peanut butter, pasta, canned vegetables, canned fruits and canned meats, diapers, formula, cleaning products, toilet paper, cereal, powdered milk, bread, coffee, tea, soups, rice, fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, etc.   You get the idea.  

Drop off during daylight hours.  If you drop off fresh fruit or vegetables, text Cindy so she can refrigerate until she takes to the food pantry.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.
