FCC Food Pantry

The FCC Food Pantry is confidential and open to anyone in our church family who needs it. You do not have to ask, apply, or be receiving SNAP (food stamps) to use the food pantry.  We know that food insecurity is an issue for all kinds of people for all kinds of reasons. Independence and self-sufficiency are high values in our culture, which sometimes makes it difficult to ask for help when we need it.  The truth is we all need help, in all kinds of ways.  We hope everyone will experience the FCC Food Pantry as a way of caring for our family, as any family would.

The FCC Food Pantry is open when the church is open (usually Monday through Friday and Sunday in the daytime and on Monday and Wednesday evenings). The Food Pantry is located by the west door in the Fellowship Hall, off from the stage. Paper shopping bags are provided.

For those of you with food to spare please help us by donating food!  All of the food must be non-perishable. We are especially in need of healthy, high-nutrition, high-protein foods like:

  • Canned meats (tuna, chicken, salmon, corned beef)
  • Canned and dried beans (pinto, navy, kidney, refried)
  • Canned stew, chili, hearty soups
  • Peanut butter and other nut butters

A basket for your food donations is located upstairs in the lobby. The basket is marked “FCC Food Pantry”. You may also make a monetary donation and we will do the shopping for you. Please indicate that your donation is for the FCC Food Pantry.

Thank you for your help!  Our church family appreciates it!
