Snow Hill Food Pantry Expands

Posted:

SNOW HILL, Md.- The Food Pantry in Snow Hill has operated out of Ebenezer United Methodist Church for more than 30 years, distributing food to those in need the second Friday of every month and providing emergency food service. It was established as an ecumenical food pantry, which means that it is supported by local churches in the area. Due to its growth, the pantry said it will be expanding services and moving to 241 South Washington Street in Snow Hill on January 1, 2014.

Each year, the pantry said it is serving more and more families in need. This time last year, it served 70-80 families each month and served over 2000 bags of food to those in need. This year, it is serving between 100 to 140 families a month, and it is projected that they will serve more than 3,000 bags. A typical bag/box induces 15 items and consist of: cereal, peanut butter, jelly, fruits, juice, soup, canned vegetables, bread, pasta, mac and cheese, tuna fish, and chicken/meats, bread and butter.

Because of its double-digit growth, the pantry has established a new location at 241 South Washington Street in Snow Hill. To facilitate this change a new organization has been founded called Snow Hill Ecumenical Food Pantry. Rosalie Mason, Tommy Mason, Stephanie Clayville and Charlie Dorman are founders of the new pantry.

Stephanie Clayville, President of the Board of Directors states, “The team at the pantry is excited about the new location and we believe that this will allow for us to provide for a wider variety of clientele and resource services.” She goes on to state, “The new location will need a lot of work and the board will be are applying for several grant opportunities to see if we can get some financial assistance with this project.”

A town meeting will be held at All Hallows Episcopal Church in Snow Hill on December 17, 2014 from 5:30-6:30. The public is invited.

If you would like to assist as a volunteer or to make donations, please contact us at Snow Hill Ecumenical Food Pantry, P.O. Box 165, Snow Hill, MD 21863 or email us at snowhillfood@gmail.com
