Pantry Service at The Church of the Village


Pantry Service at The Church of the Village

Assist the clients of Church of the Village with the client-choice pantry. Volunteers will weigh, sort, and bag produce and staple foods, help with cleanup, and assist guests in creating a pantry package of their choosing.

Volunteers should be prepared to:
•work on their feet for the duration of the project (3 hours)
•handle medium to heavy lifting (20-30 lbs)
•do not wear short shorts or sleeveless tops
•engage directly with clients



The result of a merger in 2005 of three United Methodist congregations The Church of the Village is dynamic and full of spirit. Hope for our Neighbors in Need is one of the most important missions for their church members, who see the program as a key initiative to support Social Justice and Community Outreach. Along with short-term relief from hunger they provide their guests with information on available social services to help them break the cycle of poverty.
