Food Pantry

The St. John’s Food Pantry serves our neighbors who are food insecure and/or homeless. When possible, cans that can be opened without a can opener are preferred. Cans/packages that would be used in a typical home kitchen are preferred (no industrial sized cans please). All items should be shelf stable – NO REFRIGERATED OR FROZEN ITEMS PLEASE.

Some preferred items to stock the Food Pantry:
• Peanut butter
• Bottled water
• Canned soup
• Canned fruit
• Canned vegetables
• Canned stew
• Canned meat/fish
• Canned beans
• Pasta
• Rice
• Macaroni & cheese
• Bread
• Crackers
• Snacks (prefer soft snack bars w/o nuts, filled crackers)
• Meal kits that are complete – no extra ingredients needed
• Muffin mix that only requires water
• Pancake mix that only requires water
• Apple sauce
• Cooking oil
