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. By providing a pantry to the surrounding area we are able to assist our community with a “mini-market” style food pantry where clients can choose from of a variety of food and personal care items. Volunteers help to organize, schedule, collect, distribute, and ultimately serve the community on a weekly basis.
Recipients for the food pantry will apply to receive a minimum of 3-6 months of food assistance. They will shop for free food and other items every Saturday .If any applicant needs emergency food assistance at another time, they may contact The Met Church office and will be given additional food based on the current food pantry inventory.
