Food Pantry

Edgewater United Methodist Church is honored to provide a weekly food pantry to residents of Edgewater struggling to put food on their tables.

The Pantry is open most Saturdays from 8:30-11:30 am.

The Pantry is closed on the following 2024 dates:

  • June 15
  • August 17
  • November 16

For people in need of pantry items:

We are open on most Saturday mornings from 8:30-11:30AM to provide grocery items. There is an intake process–please arrive with identification and proof of income (paystub, for instance).

Volunteer Training:

We are always adding new volunteers into our rotation. We train new volunteers on the first Friday of every month beginning at 8:30 AM.

We need volunteers to:

  • drive their personal vehicles (trucks, large SUVs) to the Daytona area on Thursdays to pick up fresh food.
  • sort and organize pantry items on Thursdays upon return from Daytona
  • Prepare and pack the week’s grocery bags on Friday mornings
  • greet and assist pantry patrons with paperwork on Saturday mornings
  • Pack and distribute bags on Saturday mornings

Contact with questions about volunteering.


We accept donations of unexpired, unopened foods directly at the pantry (in the back of the church parking lot) on Fridays between 8:30-10:30 AM.

We also accept monetary donations via check made out to “Edgewater UMC” with the memo line: Food Pantry.

100% of food pantry donations go directly to the food pantry.

Thank you for your support of this ministry!
