History and Mission of the Food Pantry
The Woodmont Baptist Church food pantry serves to minister to the local community by collecting and distributing supplemental food on a monthly basis. We strive to serve individuals in need with compassion, respect, and dignity as a representation of Christ’s love for us. We also aim to meet spiritual needs by offering support, encouraging words, and prayer.
The history goes back to the early years when WBC helped people out with food, but in the fall of 2010 Gaye Eichler worked to establish the first room here at the church as a Food Pantry with member donations. The S.A.L.T. Class stocked it for a year. Nell Sally along with others managed it during that time to keep order and pack bags. 2016 is the first time the Food Pantry was set aside as a ministry guided by a committee.
The Food Pantry is open on Tuesday mornings from 10 am – Noon.
Guests coming in for the first time complete a confidential information sheet. This streamlines subsequent visits.
Guests can come once every 2 weeks.
If a guest requests prayer, someone will sit with them and talk about their concerns and pray with them.
