Food Pantry

 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Phillippians 2:4

The Care Ministries at Harvest have established a Community Food Pantry for our congregation and our community.  The Food Pantry is now open and serving families within our congregation and the Reynolds School District Boundaries.  *Please bring photo ID and/or a piece of mail for address verification.  Items available include non-perishables and some personal care items.  Hours are Sundays 11am-1pm and Wednesdays 2-4pm

If you wish to DONATE, see below for a list of ideas.  There is a box in the foyer with a Food Pantry donation sign on the front.  You may drop off donations M-F 9am-4:30pm or Sunday mornings.  Or you can give during the offering or online and earmark the funds for the Food Pantry.  Thank you for your help in this endeavor!

Harvest Community Pantry FAQs

A: Yes! We are here to help supplement as much as you need.

A: We are not able to provide delivery services at this time, but will allow another person to pick up your food for you.  Talk to the volunteer or Harvest office and they will give you a proxy form to fill out.  If you are disabled, or over the age of 60, there are meal delivery programs called Meals on Wheels that will bring hot and cold meals directly to your home.

A: The Harvest Pantry is designed to be supplemental and we strive to provide families with at least 3 days of food.

A: The Harvest Pantry provides food assistance based on household size.  If you live in the same house or apartment, you are counted in the same household and would receive one food order for your household – not two orders.

A: We will do our best to help clients that have special dietary needs/restrictions, but unfortunately we may not always be able to make these types of accommodations.

A: We recommend contacting a staff member of Harvest Christian Church 503-492-9800
