The Food Pantry is an outreach mission of St. Paul's and gives us an opportunity to share with those in our community who have a need. The work
done at the pantry is to the glory of God. Open on Thursdays from 3 to 5 p.m., the Food Pantry serves more than 100 Ocean Grove residents every month. The pantry is staffed by volunteers who procure food, stock shelves, pack bags of groceries and keep records. Some of the food that is distributed comes from the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties and is funded through a grant. The pantry also participates in the Federal and State based food programs. Other food must be purchased with donations that the pantry receives. Still others bring donations of food items to the pantry on a regular basis.
Donations are always needed and welcomed. Donations can be put in the offering plate marked for the pantry or sent to the church office. Donations of food items are also welcome and can be left in the baskets at the entrance doors.
