Food Pantry

Our Mission

Recognizing that God has blessed us to be a blessing, the Redeemer Orthodox Presbyterian Church Food Pantry serves as a vehicle to share the overwhelming abundance God has showered on us with those in need in our community.  Food is shared with love and respect to those who come for assistance.  It is our intention that they receive not only food for their physical hunger, but generous portions of kindness and grace to feed their spiritual and emotional hungers.  We believe the words of Jesus that this is one way we can respond directly to God’s love for us: “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”  Matthew 25:35
