Need food? Our food pantry is open 24/7 inside the MSR entrance (see picture below).
We have fresh milk, eggs, produce, pasta, and other non-perishable items available.
There is no check-in, approval process, or people you need to contact in order to get food.
Just please come by and feel free to take what you need.
Earlier this spring, as the coronavirus pandemic took hold across the nation, Asbury recognized the community's need for help with feeding their families and keeping their homes clean and safe. So we started an outdoor food pantry ministry. What began as a couple shelves outside our front door with cans of food and some rolls of toilet paper has turned into a much-needed resource for struggling families in our community!
In addition to non-perishable food items, our food pantry also includes butter, cheese, fresh produce, bread, and ice-cold bottled water. Although perishable foods are in high demand, please do not attempt to donate these items. We have found it to be easier to purchase perishable items as they are needed. This helps minimize any spoilage.
If you have any questions or comments about the Asbury UMC Community Food Pantry - or if you would like to volunteer! - please let Steve Trenholm know. He welcomes anyone to reach out to him at . Thank you, Asbury, for helping us help our neighbors! Your continued generosity with our food pantry ministry is incredibly appreciated.
