Food Pantry
  Non-Perishable Food Supplies

 

 

 

The food pantry, serving Penacook residents, is open Tuesdays from 9:30 to 11:30 AM year round. Visitors coming to the pantry are allowed two bags of groceries every two weeks unless extra food is available or an emergency situation comes up.

In order to keep the food pantry going we are asking that non-perishable food and personal hygiene items be donated.

Personal Care Items

All items must be in original packaging. Please check expiration dates on all donated items. Outdated items cannot be accepted.

This pantry is an equal opportunity provider. USDA Nondiscrimination Statement

Pantry Workers and Visitor

All items donated are appreciated and can be left in the food pantry in Fellowship Hall.

If you are uncertain what is in short supply, contact the pantry director.

Prison Ministry: Greeting Cards and Bibles
 

For the greeting card collection, any type of card is accepted. "Thinking of You" cards are most needed. As you look through your cards or find a sale on boxed cards, please consider giving to this ministry. The Chaplaincy staff at the New Hampshire State Prison is trying to encourage the inmates to maintain their relationships with family and friends by providing them with greeting cards at no cost. The Chapel is the only source inmates have available within the prison to obtain greeting cards. Cards can be deposited year round at the Missions collection area in the Narthex.
