“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

May 2, 2022 the Food Pantry will be open for walk-in distribution once again!  Our hours will remain the same.  We are working on a new schedule and we need your help.  Volunteers are always welcome and we have several areas that will need volunteers once we return to in-person distribution.  Areas of service are:  greeters, registration, USDA room, food pantry room and loading cars.  If you would like to become a part of this church mission please contact Pat Lynn (234-8546, with questions and get your name added to the work rotation.
HOURS: 4:00 – 5:30pm
COVID-19 UPDATE:  Our Food Pantry remains OPEN every Monday from 4:00 – 5:30pm, but it is drive-thru only
While it pains us that we can no longer offer you the  personal shopping experience you have become accustomed to, we must do our part to prevent the spread of Covid-19.  Each week we will be providing carefully prepackaged boxes/ bags of food, which will be delivered directly to your car.  Once the pandemic subsides, we will resume our normal food pantry shopping practice.  Thank you for your understanding during this time.
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.  We hope you find our community friendly and comfortable. Contact Pat Lynn (234-8546, or Kathy Frizzelle (540-421-0941, kmfrizzelle) if you have questions.

Did you know?

It takes about 30 volunteers each week to make the Food Pantry happen.
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 donations in the basket in the gathering space.
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!
