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 admin@edgewaterunitedmethodist.org with questions about volunteering.

Donations:

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!
