Food Pantry

The Met Food Pantry will be closed from December 18th-January 8th.  
We will reopen the 9th of January to better assist our Food Pantry families and clients.

The Met Food Pantry

The mission of the Food Pantry is to provide food to the hungry in the local community. By providing a pantry to the surrounding area we will be able to assist our community with monthly a “mini-market” style food pantry where clients can choose from of a variety of food and personal care items. Volunteers from the Met church will be able to organize, schedule, collect, distribute, and ultimately serve the community on a bi-monthly basis. The Met’s mission is to provide a place where the needy receive food assistance as well as support to get involved in activities that will assist them in growth towards a brighter tomorrow.

Applicants for the Met Church Food Pantry will need to apply to receive a minimum of 6 months of food assistance that will be picked up on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month. Only prescreened applicants may receive the items that have been pre purchased and selected for the clients. Allowances will be made at which the applicant may need emergency assistance throughout the month and The Met Food Pantry may be able to provide a request for food for the household in need based on The Met Food Pantry inventory.
