Food Pantry

” for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink,” Matt 25:35 RSV

FoodPantryAt the First United Methodist Church of Blairstown Food Pantry we provide our guests with quality food, personal products, and fellowship. Our vision is to be a source of nutritional support for our area’s residents who are in need. Clients are able to choose from a wide variety of fresh, frozen, and non-perishable items.

We are funded by grants from NORWESCAP, and donations from various community groups and individual contributors. Grants and monetary donations are used to purchase meats, and other items that are not fully supplied by our donations.

We work in partnership with four other area ministries, which offer food pantries at their locations on a rotating basis.
