Get Food Help
A free service for our neighbors
Helping You Stretch Your Food Budget
It seems making ends meet is getting tougher all the time! We want to help. Our food pantry stocks many staple items that can help you stretch your food budget.
Each week we help many people supplement their food budgets through our food pantry. This is a free service and is supplied by the donations of our members and others in the community.
Our Food Pantry is open to the public on Tuesday from 7am to 3pm and 5:30pm to 7:30pm. The food pantry is located off the north parking lot behind the sanctuary. Go to the back parking lot and look for the sign.
We usually have a variety of canned items, pasta and sauce, bread, cereal, rice, peanut butter, and other staples.
You do not have to demonstrate need, register, or sign in. No ID required.
You are welcome to come during open hours and choose whatever items you or your family can use!
You can call the church at 520-327-5989 or email us if you have questions.

OTHER WAYS TO GET FOOD HELP
The federal food assistance program, SNAP, sometimes also called Food Stamps, is available to low-income households to encourage healthy food choices. We have developed a new guide aimed at educating senior citizens about the benefits of this great program, I am also including another great meal program for seniors and people with disabilities (Meals on Wheels)
