For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you invited me in. (Matthew 25:35)
The Sparta Food Pantry helps feed those families in need in Sussex County.
In addition to the weekly food distribution the Pantry provides a Summer Lunch Program that helps feed children who normally get lunch assistance in school, but not during the summer. The Pantry also provides special meals at the Holidays.
You may have noticed in the past few weeks during Holy Communion the Ushers have been placing 2 Large Baskets in the Nave. These baskets are for the Food Pantry and all members of the Congregation are asked to bring a food donation and place them in the baskets when they come for Communion.
Right now the pantry is focused on canned vegetables and beans but any type food donation is welcome.
For more information on the food pantry or if you want to get more involved please contact Beth Meier firstname.lastname@example.org.
