Food for the hungry …
The Food Pantry at Frenchtown Presbyterian provides help to anyone who is in need of food and other basic staples. The Food Pantry has some exciting new changes!  We have moved the pantry into the church basement and beginning on Monday, June 6, 2022, the pantry will be open to our community from 6:00 am – 9:00 pm every day.  If you know of anyone that could benefit from our pantry please let them know!  You can follow the updates and any special events on our Facebook page  Facebook.com/FPCPantryOn4th. 

If you have any questions or would be interested in being part of our volunteer team, contact us at FPCPantryOn4th@gmail.com

  • Chunky-style soups
  • Dinty Moore Beef Stew

  • juices
  • snack items

  • yogurt

We would like to ask you to keep the Pantry in mind in these ways:

  1. When you are grocery shopping: When grocery items are on sale, (for instance buy one, get one free or 10 for $10) could you please pick up some for the Pantry as well as for yourself? A list of needed items is posted on this page and in the Sunday bulletin. There is a barrel in the foyer outside the Sanctuary for non-perishables and perishable items can go into the fridge in the church kitchen. (There is a Pantry magnet on the side of the fridge – move it to the front when you leave food for the Pantry!)
  2. When you come to worship: If you have trouble remembering to buy things for the Pantry, or don’t want to carry extra bags around, you can make a monetary donation. There are brightly colored envelopes in the pews that are just for Pantry donations. The Deacons’ grocery expenses for the Pantry are higher each year!
  3. The IGA in Frenchtown has a program called “Frenchtown Feeds Frenchtown.” The IGA converts monetary donations made there into gift certificates we use to purchase items for the Pantry.
