FOOD PANTRY

Good eats for friends in need!
 
“For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you took me in…” ~Matthew 25
 
The Bethany Food Pantry is open every Monday from 4:00 – 5:30 pm at the church. Every week, we offer food to any of our neighbors who need it. The amount of food you receive is based on the size of your family. You do not need identification to receive food. On CERTAIN announced Mondays a meal will be offered in the gathering space from 4-5:30 pm. We hope you find our community friendly and comfortable. Contact Pat Lynn (234-8546, patm.lynn@gmail.com) or Kathy Frizzelle (540-421-0941, kmfrizzelle) if you have questions.

Did you know?

We distribute food to 65-90 households a week, with over 1600 people served in the month of December 2014.
 
It takes about 30 volunteers each week to make the Food Pantry happen.
 
We pick up donated food from the Staunton Food Lion 3 times per week, which provides 2000-3000 pounds of food for our neighbors.
 
We buy and pick up food from the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank each Monday at 8 am in order to provide enough food for each Monday afternoon distribution.
 
We rely on special monetary donations (marked Food Pantry) in order to pay for the food at the Food Bank or on food donation in the basket in the gathering space.
 
Beth Metcalfe and team provides a hot, homemade meal on the third Monday of the month, which feeds 100-200 people for dinner.
 
Eddie and Kim Moyer provide toiletry items each month for our neighbors.
 
Mt Crawford UMC provides volunteers each week at our food pantry AND toilet paper for our neighbors on the third week of each month.
 
We need your prayers!
