Working together to fulfill our mission…

By working with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and local food vendors like Zagara’s, Save-a-Lot, Panera’s, On the Rise, Bruegger’s, and Heinens, our costs are kept down to 4¢ per pound. The pantry receives grants from the Food Bank, Harvest for Hunger, United Way, Forest Hill Church, other church groups, and donations from a number of individuals.

The mission of the food pantry is to:

  • Provide food and other groceries to our neighbors in need.
  • Promote fresh vegetables and healthy foods.
  • Get to know our neighbors and create a welcoming experience at the pantry.
  • Encourage involvement by our pantry guests in the work that needs to be done.
  • Be very efficient with the funds that we are given.
  • Be respectful of the space and equipment that is being made available to us at the church.

Volunteer at the Food Pantry

Tuesdays from 8:00am to 1:00pm

Every Tuesday, volunteers from the church and the neighborhood get together to distribute food to qualified families in our community. We begin picking up food and start packing the boxes and bags at 8:00am. From 10:30am until 1:00pm, food is placed directly into cars.
