Asbury’s Food Pantry is open every Wednesday from 2-3:30 p.m. to anyone in need. The pantry is closed one day each year: the day before Thanksgiving. It also may close due to inclement weather.
To receive groceries, please bring a copy of your photo I.D. And, if you need to visit again, you may do so indefinitely – just wait two weeks before a return visit.
Asbury’s Food Pantry opened during the summer of 2011 with limited food choices and pre-packed bags. Today clients receive 25+ items from a wide variety of choices and get to do their own shopping.
Asbury’s Food Pantry is solely operated through generous monetary donations and funds allocated by the Missions in Action program. Food donations are also provided by Asbury members and different community groups that have food drives. If you would like to make a donation, food pantry items (non-perishables) can be dropped off outside the pantry doors from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday, or brought on Sunday mornings.
Let’s stock the pantry shelves! Brown bags are available at each worship entrance – fill a bag and return it to the Mission Wall. All nonperishables are welcome (as long as they haven’t expired) but here are some frequently requested items:
• Canned meats (Vienna sausage, ravioli)
• Hearty soups
• Spaghetti sauce (plastic containers preferred, if possible)
• Peanut butter & jelly (NOT family size)
• Canned fruits
Volunteers are mobilized from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. seven days a week, to retrieve good food from local restaurants, grocers, cafes, catering companies, farmers, and anywhere else food is available.
All rescued food is reallocated from a trip to the landfill and onto the plates of the food insecure.
You can join the food rescue app and pick up food, volunteer at a drive-thru, donate food, host a food drive, or alert Grace Klein to a food-rescue.
