Market Street Pantry


Market Street Pantry’s volunteers are its biggest cheerleaders.  

To understand why, here are representative sentiments of many of them:

“ I didn’t realize how much poverty there is around here. “

“ I really feel good about doing this. “

“ The need for food here is always increasing. “

“ Clients express to us gratefulness, relief and a sense of dignity. “

“ I enjoy working with our clients and the conversations we have. “

“ The people make my day when they say things like ‘ You are a Godsend to us. ‘

“ More than once I’ve heard a client say: ‘ I only take what I need. Let someone else have that. ‘

These are positive emotions you may experience as a volunteer at our food pantry.  Helping our client’s grocery shop is only one of the things our volunteers do. Alternatively, you can help stock the pantry shelves or check clients in using our lap top computer and accompanying client acceptance criteria.

And please don’t forget those food donations.  Put them in the back of the Church in or by the basket.  We can always use peanut butter, mac & cheese and canned foods like tuna fish, meats, fruits, soups and vegetables.
