The Eastport Community Food Pantry

The next food pantry distributions will be at 11 am on the third Saturday of each month:

September 17

October 15

November 19

December 17

Eastport United Methodist hosts the community food pantry outside in the parking lot on the third Saturday of each month at 11 am.

 

Supplies are distributed on a "first-come first-served" basis as long as supplies last.

Our food pantry distributions providing much needed staple foods, frozen meats, and health and hygiene items are a huge success and a lot of fun.

 

We have so many food donations from the Anne Arundel County Food Bank as well as donations from friends and neighbors. GROW Annapolis brings the freshest produce from their community gardens.

 

During the colder months, #JustOneSweater provides more sweaters and coats than you can imagine.

 

As part of our Little Free Library, we distribute tons of books and educational materials during the food pantry.

We have several valuable community partnerships that have come together to provide relief to our neighbors:

Chesapeake Harbor Village Condominium Association has been supplying our food pantry with baby diapers and wipes.

The Eastport, Hillsmere, and Hunt Meadow neighborhood groups have been instrumental in donating all kinds of food and other essentials for the food pantry.

Interested in volunteering? One does not have to be a member of the church to join in the fun. This is open to all. Join us at 10 am to help set up and we usually wrap up around 12:30 pm. We are grateful for the 50+ volunteers from all over the county who make this happen!

Want to Contribute?

The most efficient way for us to collect food donations is through the Anne Arundel County Food Bank, however, if you wish to contribute financially to the community food pantry, you can give online at eastportumc.org/give
