The Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry distributes food on Thursday afternoons to anyone in need between the hours of 1 and 3 pm with the exception of holidays. Anyone is eligible for a food box once during a 30 day period. Please bring a photo ID. No appointment is needed. The Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry is located in the Education Building on the Salem UMC campus.
November is Food Pantry month at Salem. During the month of November, the first Sunday communion rail offering will benefit the food pantry and a canned food drive is conducted. All food distributed through the food pantry is either donated or purchased through the church. To find out more information on the food pantry or to help out with this ministry, contact the church office or the ministry team leader (see the leadership page of this site).
