  • Description: The food pantry is a mission of The United Church established in 1981 as a community service. Money and food from the church, individual members, FEMA, International Monetary Fund, student groups of the George Washington University, and others provide the basic support. Funds are used to purchase food and supplies, principally salvage food from the Capital Area Community Food Bank. There are no overhead charges because the program is run by volunteers utilizing the church's facilities. Food is bagged and distributed twice per month to individuals and families that can demonstrate need. Special bags containing ready-to-eat foods are prepared for those who are homeless. The Pantry is currently distributing about 900 bags of food each month (approximately 15,000 pounds) at a cost of about $3,000 per month. Volunteers are needed on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month. Pack bags beginning at 9:00 a.m. - distribution is from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
