The Feeding Hope Food Pantry at First Church will be happening as scheduled on Tuesday mornings from 9:30am-11:30am and the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from 6:30-7:30pm, until further notice. The process for distribution will be different, however, until further notice. We appreciate your patience as we work through this together.
In March 2020, food for almost 16,900 meals was provided to 1,408 people in 480 families. This is a new monthly high for our pantry and we are pleased to support friends and neighbors through the COVID-19 crisis. Out of the 57 pantries usually open in Summit County, only 22 food pantries have been able to continue during the pandemic.
Patrons arriving by car:
Please stay in your vehicle and follow the line of traffic through the upper parking lot on Union Street. A volunteer will meet patrons at the checkpoint to verify information and family size.
Patrons arriving on foot:
Please form a line outside the Chapel entrance and meet a volunteer at the checkpoint to verify patron information and family size. Please try to follow the recommended safe distance of six feet between persons.
Canned and boxed food will be pre-packaged and distributed by family size. Refrigerated items, including dairy, will also be distributed based on family size. Patrons will have a choice of preference for meat, dairy, and produce. Keep in mind that items are given out first come, first serve and the Feeding Hope Food Pantry cannot guarantee patrons will receive first choice of items.
