PANTRY REBUILD PROJECT

The Pantry building is 80 years old and has developed some structural issues that require us to rebuild. We are currently staging food at four locations including a trailer on the Pantry property. The rebuild will take two years. We need your support in order to rebuild. For more information visit our Pantry Rebuild page.

We’re Helping Reduce Food Insecurities

The Food Pantry distributes perishable and non-perishable groceries at each opening. We are open every Tuesday 12-2 pm, the second Wednesday of the month from 5-7 pm, and the last Saturday of the month from 10-12pm.

We Help Serve the Elderly

Four times a year 120 residents in the Calvert Nursing Center receive gift tote bags filled with snacks, personal products, and games.

Our HeartFELT Program Services the Young
We have also established an adjunct ministry called the HeartFELT program, in which we distribute backpacks filled with food for the weekend to food insecure children.
