Epiphany Community Food Pantry

The Epiphany Community Food Pantry is in need of all non-perishable food items for our Pantry.  Please make sure that all food has a shelf life of 2020 and beyond.  WE WILL NOT ACCEPT EXPIRED FOOD.  We thank you for your continued generosity.  

The Epiphany Community Food Pantry will no longer be distributing food from the Rectory Office.    Food will be distributed on Fridays only between 10:00am and 12 Noon, at the back entrance of the Rectory, at the Rectory Conference Room.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors and volunteers, each month, our program serves hundreds of local families by providing them with non-perishable foods, toiletries, and other special seasonal items, as supplies allow. We also organize a number of other special events throughout the year, including our annual Lenten Soup Supper, as well as our special Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter programs, which distribute additional items to our client-families in need.
Unlike government-run food programs, the Epiphany Community Food Pantry does not receive any funding from the government or outside sources - our food pantry is stocked solely by our parishioners and friends. We are also generously supported by many local schools, churches, social organizations, and others who organize food drives and other fundraisers in support of our worthy cause.
Want to help us? We accept all donations of non-perishable foods and toiletries, grocery store gift cards, as well as monetary donations. During the holiday seasons of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter only, we also accept frozen turkeys, hams, etc. Please bring any such perishable donations directly to the Epiphany Parish Office during our normal operating hours. All other non-perishable donations may be brought to one of the donation barrels located at the entrances of the church building. May God bless you for your generosity!
