Food Pantry

Limington OP Church has a food pantry that is open to any Limington resident who is struggling to put food on the table.  We want to be a blessing to others who are in need.

PANTRY WILL BE OPEN ONCE EACH MONTH (ALWAYS A SATURDAY).  I WILL MEET WITH FAMILIES BY APPOINTMENT ON THE ABOVE SATURDAY MORNINGS.

PLEASE CONTACT VAL BLAKE @ (503) 708-5230 (phone or text)  OR BY EMAIL valblake53@gmail.com BEFORE WEDNESDAY  IF YOU NEED AN APPOINTMENT.  PLEASE CALL AHEAD OF TIME FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT. IF YOU WAIT UNTIL THURSDAY OR FRIDAY, I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FIT YOU IN AND WILL ASSUME YOU DO NOT NEED THE PANTRY THAT MONTH.

WE RECEIVE MOST OF OUR FOOD ITEMS FROM THE GOOD SHEPHERD FOOD BANK IN AUBURN.  THEY REQUIRE THAT A FAMILY USE ONLY ONE FOOD PANTRY SERVICED BY THEM. THIS MEANS THAT IF A FAMILY IS USING MORE THAN ONE FOOD PANTRY SERVICED BY THE GOOD SHEPHERD, THEN THAT FAMILY WOULD THEN NEED TO DECIDE WHICH FOOD PANTRY THEY WOULD PREFER TO BE HELPED BY.

OUR GOAL REMAINS TO HELP FAMILIES IN EMERGENCIES BY SUPPLYING THEM WITH UP TO ONE WEEK’S WORTH OF FOOD (AS WELL AS HOUSEHOLD ITEMS) PER MONTH WHEN THEY RUN LOW.
