St. Peter's Food Pantry
Serving people for over 50 years

Over this time, St. Peter's has supported many local organizations and individuals in need of food assistance. Currently, this central pantry supports all our programs. Our local scout groups help supply this pantry, collecting hundreds of pounds of food every year during their March food drive. We also hold a "Green Bag" Sunday twice a year wherein our church community generously donated food to replenish our shelves.
