The Grace-St. Luke’s Food Pantry distributes a three-day supply of groceries on an emergency basis to families in crisis. For many families who are facing trauma and who are not (yet) homeless, food pantry assistance can bridge the need to recovery or more long-term assistance.
Our food pantry is part of a vital network of organizations that serve needy families. Food pantries across the city are coordinated by the Metropolitan Interfaith Association (MIFA), which screens families for eligibility and directs them to a pantry.
Want to donate?
Parishioners who pledge to the church already support food pantry through their contributions. You can provide additional support by bringing food or personal supplies (the most needed items are usually dry milk, canned meats, nutritious cereals, paper products like toilet paper, and toiletries such as soap or toothbrushes and toothpaste) and leaving them on the round table next to the Food Pantry (just inside the east doors to Trezevant Hall).
