GOD'S PANTRY

 

 

In October 1981, the Board of Deacons opened Godís Pantry in the church to serve the community by providing food for the needy. This effort has received the support of many churches and organizations in the community as well as steady support of the congregation. It is staffed by volunteers and is the largest pantry in Scioto County.

During the year 1999, God's Pantry provided groceries for approximately 6,000 families.

Some of the stocked shelves in God's Pantry.

R.L. Mohr, Martha Potts and Cindy Wright
are replenishing our supplies.

God's Pantry is located in the basement of Second Presbyterian Church.  The shelves are stocked with supplies from the main storage room. 

Non-perishable food items, including long-life milk products, are provided however we are occasionally blessed with donations of fresh fruit and vegetables for our families. We also have frozen meats and cheese available.

God's Pantry is a choice pantry where recipients shop for their needs.  In 2006 the pantry provided food for over 85,000 meals.

God's Pantry is open on Wednesdays from 10AM until 2PM to qualified Scioto County residents.  To sign up you must bring an picture ID and a SSN for each member of the family along with a proof of residence, like a utility bill.  For emergency help, go to the office and the secretary will help you.

God's Pantry is still the Deacons mission project and Cindy Cookson is the director.

Save Your Coupons!
Godís Pantry is placing a box at the 8th St. entrance expressly for donation of your food coupons.  The pantry can use them in purchasing food.

Anyone wishing to send a donation can address a check to God's Pantry and mail it in care of Second Presbyterian Church to the address listed above.

For food donations, please call the Church so that our volunteers can coordinate the collection of the items.
