Eden Pantry is a community food pantry. It opened two weeks ago. It is staffed by volunteers who make meals for those in need. If you’d like to help, you can donate online by following the donation instructions. When you make a donation online, you’ll need to click on “more offering categories” and then select “Eden’s Pantry.”
The food pantry is an outreach of the University Church, which has donated funds, food, and time to provide a healthy meal to those in need. The pantry provides a wide variety of nutritious foods, and the students who visit it receive these meals at no cost. In addition to food and funds, the pantry provides a great opportunity for volunteers to serve their community.
Eden’s Pantry recently received a call from United Way and was asked to help stage a food distribution. In a little more than six hours, volunteers filled a church fellowship hall and youth room with food donations. Members of the church donated thousands of dollars to help purchase food. With the help of volunteers and the support of College Place Cares, the pantry is hoping to grow its services and reach more people in the community.
