Our Food Pantry is a significant ministry of outreach that has a major impact on our neighbors.  It opened on October 5, 2007.  We now serve a few hundred client families in the eastern Nassau County area, and we are always looking for new volunteers.  With rare exceptions, we are open every Friday morning from 9:30 to 11:30 AM.

We give special thanks to Joe Samodulski of St. Ignatius Social Services, who helped us set up the Food Pantry and remains available for advice and counsel.  St. Ignatius's Church is a neighboring Roman Catholic Church which runs a food pantry twice a week.

Donations (food, paper products, diapers, cash, etc.) are always needed and always welcome.

The picture above is of the volunteers who were present at our awareness-raising and anniversary celebration in 2009.  Plus there is one special guest in this photo: Joe Samodulski of St. Ignatius Social Services.  Joe is the guy with the bright smile in the absolute center of the projection screen (the white space).  Also in this picture are Judy and Jim Frankson, our current co-chairpersons (Judy is the woman with red hair to the right of Joe, and Jim is the man with classes right behind her).  Next person on the right, in a black polo shirt, is one of our former chairpersons, Pat Carman.

The picture above is of our 2009 awareness-raising "pot-luck" dinner.  "Pot-luck" suppers are an old tradition with us.  People bring a prepared "dish to pass," and we all then choose which foods seem interesting and good.

Maybe you'd like to volunteer to help us.  Let us know!
