The Servant’s Heart Food Pantry was born out of a desire to serve and assist struggling families in the city of Melrose and the surrounding communities. In 1996 the first food was distributed from a broken down three-shelf bookcase in the basement of the church to just 5 families. Over time word spread and the number of families who frequented the food pantry grew. Ten years later there were nearly 70 families receiving food each month. What began with a few volunteers and a bookcase of food has now grown to countless hours of volunteer assistance and many more shelves of food. Today the pantry supplies food regularly to over 150 families.
