First United Methodist Church Food Pantry

Tuesdays, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

The First United Methodist Church Food Pantry is a joint venture by the congregation of FUMC and the Treasure Coast Food Bank. This is an “Emergency Food Bank”. Our goal is to be able to help our neighbor families with a little food to get them through a rough time or an emergency situation. We have limited resources and therefore cannot provide food on a regular basis. Due to limited resources food help is only available once every three months! We ask that you please respect this rule and allow us to continue to provide help to our neighbors when they are in need. 

 

 Online/Mobile Giving

You can make your donations online!
