Food Pantries

First United Methodist Church supports Food Finders Food Pantry and partners with other United Methodist Churches to support food pantries in our area:
  • Mobile Food Pantry: First Church is among the sponsors of this effort,  led by Food Finders Food Bank. The cost to sponsor one truck is $1,500 and about 20 volunteers are needed to help distribute the food for about 4-6 hours on our designated day. Last year, we fed more than 1,000 families. It's startling to see  how many of those who come are elderly and disabled. Contact Jeanne Norberg, 491-1460,
  • The United Methodist Women of our church support the Lafayette Urban Ministry's food pantry at St. John's Episcopal Church at 6th and Ferry streets. Contact Sally Gustafson, 463-5874,
