St. Peter's Food Pantry
Provides non-perishable staples for those who express a need and live in the Washington School District.
We are open weekly during these hours:
Monday Noon to 1pm
Tuesday 12:30pm to 1:30pm
Thursday 9am to 10am
[Please note that the pantry closes due to inclement weather if the school district closes.]
All Food Pantry Clients need to:
1) Reside in the Washington School District
2) Present Photo I.D.
3) Present Proof of Address (current electric or water bill is OK)
NO FOOD CAN BE DISTRIBUTED WITHOUT THESE THREE THINGS!
Our pantry is staffed by volunteers who sort and stock food and prepare the food packages. Volunteers, groceries and financial assistance are always gladly accepted. The community supports the pantry financially and through food drives by the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, local Post Office, and the Community Festival of Trees.
An ecumenical ministry operating out of St. Peter's that serves a free community meal open to everyone. Several churches partner on Saturdays from 5 to 6pm so no one has to eat alone.
