First Baptist Church’s food pantry has operated successfully for years with an established financial means. At this time, we cannot purchase enough food in bulk to sustain the pantry because grocery stores do not have cases of food items regularly available. Residents are stepping forward with individual donations to support the pantry during this time. If you would like to support the pantry, donations can be delivered to the church on Tues. and Thurs. weekly between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM. Items to consider: canned vegetables, fruits & meals, pasta, pasta sauce, peanut butter, jelly, mac and cheese, canned soup, cereal, rice, oatmeal, canned chicken, tuna, luncheon meat & Vienna sausages, pancake mix & syrup, toilet paper, hygiene products, brownie mix, and drink boxes. Thank you for helping to feed 180-200 people in the Moorestown neighborhood!
The Food Pantry
The FBCM Food Pantry began as a small folding table holding a few non-perishable items in the lounge of the church. Since then it has grown into a multi-room operation, feeding from 250 to 300 people per week. Our dedicated volunteer staff work tirelessly collecting donations, stocking and restocking shelves, and greeting guests each week. It truly is a ministry of service to the community.
Each third Sunday of the month is "Food Pantry Sunday" at our church, where congregants and friends bring food and give monetary donations to support the Pantry.
DONATIONS: The First Baptist Food Pantry appreciates donations from both private individuals and groups/organizations. We survive and thrive because of the giving spirit of people like you! Here is a list of some items that are needed on a regular basis.
