Grace Lutheran Church Food Pantry
The Food Pantry was begun over 20 years ago by a couple of Grace Church members using funds provided through the church budget and contributions from other sources. It was begun to provide food to an area around the church, for those in need at Grace and families recommended for food by other Lutheran churches. On an average we provide 30-35 families with food each month.
