Food Pantry

Food Pantry ShelfDon’t let the cupboard become bare.  Drop off your contributions to the Food Bank collection area.

In the Narthex entrance closest to the Pleasant Valley entrance, there is a bank of cabinets.  Place your donations in the cabinet designated for the Food Bank.

Food donations are delivered to the local food pantries.  The Bethel AME Church regularly serves 70 families.

Donations of paper products as well as canned foods and cereals are most welcome.

There is also a need for foil baking pans and gift cards for turkeys or hams from Shop Rite or Acme. If you would rather make a monetary donation, make checks payable to either St. Matthew Lutheran Church or Bethel AME Church, both in Moorestown. Donations of cash can be left in our Church office or given to Marilyn Arbittier. The food boxes will be collected in the Music foyer at First UMC through Nov. 12 th . The Food Pantry wishes to thank everyone for their generosity in providing a holiday meal for those less
fortunate in our neighborhoods.

*Please note: First UMC and St. Matthew CANNOT store fresh vegetables or
turkeys, and Bethel AME has a limited amount of space. If you have a turkey
to donate, please call Bethel AME Church, 856-435- 3152 to arrange a drop
off time with them. Any questions, please call the Church Office.
