St. Johnís Food Pantry

 

 

St. Johnís maintains an emergency food pantry, designed to service transients and people with little in the way of cooking facilities.Its pantry is not intended for long-term support.Along with other members of the Lewistown Ministerial Association, we support a larger Food Pantry, ďMother Hubbardís Cupboard,Ē located at St. Markís Episcopal Church, on South Main Street, in downtown Lewistown.We also have associations with Shelter Services, Inc., on Dorcus Street and the Salvation Army, both of which have emergency food services.St. Johnís is also a sponsor of the Angel Food Ministries, operating under the direction of the Lewistown Ministerial Association, with monthly distributions from the Brooklyn Fire Company.

 

For information on any of these programs, please call the church office at (717)248-8780.
