The Food Pantry ministry distributes food to those in need in our community. The Food Pantry at the Norwich Worship Center began 30 plus years ago as Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard. With weekly food distributions, and Thanksgiving baskets being the focus of the ministry. Many people have worked diligently over the years to help this ministry grow and be able to help many families each and every week.
Over the years we have created partnerships with other organizations like the Gemma Moran United Way Food Center, Panera in Lisbon, and the St. Vincent De Paul Soup Kitchen. Each Tuesday registration to pick up food begins at noon. Food Distribution is from 12:30pm – 1:30pm.
Each week we encourage the members of our fellowship to bring donations for the food bank to our weekly services. If you or your family are in need of Food, please feel free to call our Church at 860-822-9522, so that we can put you in touch with the Food Pantry. If you are visiting the Food Pantry for the first time please bring a Photo ID, a copy of the utility bill and your own shopping bags.
The Food Pantry is always looking for volunteers that are able to lift & help move boxes of food (between 1,000-1,500 lbs. a week are distributed). Set up begins on Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m.
