Our food pantry is open on Tuesdays, from 10am - 1 pm and is manned by volunteers.
We use social media regularly to educate the community on the emergency food assistance available to them. Besides non-perishable items we have meats, dairy products, and fresh fruits & vegetables. We serve the greater Port Jefferson area community, we are currently Feeding 30 families weekly with the ability to double that number as we partner with different programs to bring in more fresh healthy foods to our pantry.
All donations are to be made on Tuesday from 10am-1pm please enter from the rear of the church building. Call our food coordinator for other arrangements 631-560-7692 Andy
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
