First Baptist Church of Amherst - Food Pantry
Amherst, MA 01002
Details: Every Wednesday First Baptist is filled with people from our community receiving food, diapers, paper products, hygiene supplies, and more at the Food Pantry. Too many people in our community must decide between food, diapers, health care, medications, winter heat, etc. First Baptist offers community services so our neighbors can meet these basic needs for themselves and their families. The Food Pantry serves more than 75-90 homes a week. Last year more than $73,000 worth of goods were given by the Food Pantry. During the Christmas season we work together with the Toys-for-Tots program to offer Christmas gifts to families throughout the area. The Food Pantry has been meeting needs in our community and sharing God’s love for twenty years. Hours – Wednesday 2-4 p.m.
